Katherine Weintraub delivered a stellar premiere of my latest work, "In Rarefied Air," at the North American Saxophone Alliance Southeast Conference in March. This piece was fun to write - each contrasting section brought to mind a landscape or environment that I tried to connect in a meaningful way, so that by listening to it you get a sense of having made a journey. I thought Katherine's performance really brought a brilliance and color to those imagined landscapes, not to mention some impressive execution of very high register passages! Click to listen!
