Product Description

The work comprises three movements, each set to a tempo marking of 76 beats per minute. However, each movement's mood is quite distinct from the other two. The first movement is a bolero, with a distinct Spanish flavor and rhythms. It opens and closes with the advanced saxophone technique of slap-tonguing. The second movement is set as a funeral march, a form the composer returns to from time to time to keep himself mindful of the brevity of life on this earth. The mournful outer sections contrast with a rather anguished outcry of grief in the middle. The third movement forms a whirlwind tarantella to close the work. Composed in 2008 for and recorded by Kenneth Tse. Total duration 14.25 minutes.
