Programme Note:
The composer writes:

This piece for saxophone quartet is an arrangement of the fourth movement of
my Quartet of Dances (2004), for string quartet.

The short, lively piece adheres to no established form or genre: it is not a
waltz, a tango, a foxtrot, or any other specific kind of dance. I call it a
“dance” because it is essentially rhythmic rather than melodic in its
conception, with an irregular yet emphatic pulse throughout.

As well, the piece comes with its own built-in little manifesto: there is too
much seriousness in contemporary music. I claim no exemption from my own
criticism, as some of my own works unabashedly strive for profundity and
gravity. But in this piece, I have tried to inject some joie de vivre into
new music.
