Programme Note:
Quartet No. 1 for Saxophones was composed within a seven-note mode that, compared with a major scale, has its sixth and seventh scale degree lowered by a semitone. The first movement follows a general sonata structure and is meant to convey general joy and ebullience. The solemn second movement, in a general arch shape, introduces various short melodies over a cycling, ruminating theme passing continually from voice to voice. In the third movement, jaunty melodic fragments are tossed from voice to voice, juxtaposed with a more sustained melody, coalesced with new motives into a fugue, and finally reunited in their transformed state with a reprise of the sustained theme.
