Programme Note:
In Quiet Light is based on sketches for a structured improvisation that I had originally composed for solo saxophone. This piece is a reworking and development of those musical materials, retaining the improvisatory nature and the spacious, unhurried meditative feel of the original. Throughout the work, the two instruments move primarily in a series of call-and-response patterns, fading in and out of the overall texture by echoing one another. The piece is meant to unfold in a single long line with new musical ideas emerging seamlessly, then gradually circling back to the opening material, creating a sense of gentle ebb and flow.In Quiet Light was composed in 2009 for saxophonist Christopher Creviston and guitarist Oren Fader.

Premiere Information:
