Product details

"We all have some darkness underneath that smile. Some of us have more than others... It so happened that the fate of Let the Darkness Out was affected by two of my other pieces. When I was commissioned to write this work, I just finished a very dark and dramatic horn trio. I thought that this new piece would be a good opportunity for me to compose something peaceful and happy. However, when I was about to start working on it, I was asked to also write a very positive, light, innocent, and full of joy children's choir. I thought that I was not the best person to write something like this to begin with, and definitely not two times in a row. So I decided to make sure I put any of the darkness I have left in me (and it turned out there was actually quite a lot) into this saxophone sonata to get it all out of my system. As a result, Let the Darkness Out is truly sincere and reflects my real musical inner-world." - Catherine Likhuta
