Sheet Music: Score
In motion : for saxophone orchestra / Nadia Burgess.
by Nadia Burgess (2012)
This piece portrays a sense of forward motion as in bustling traffic, busy lifestyles and travelling from place to place. A prominent bass motif is accompanied by repeated ostinato patterns whilst two contrasting main themes are being developed.
It is through composed, but the Coda features free improvisation. This crossover work is a fusion of minimalism, jazz, pop and African music.
