Score

(Philadelphia) sky sketch : for two trios / Chris Williams.

Library shelf no. 785.816/WIL 1 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

Musical clouds configure and reconfirgure themselves. The sextet, divided into two trios, plays through specific musical material, but is allowed certain freedoms in rhythm and coordination. I imagine the rich monochrome space above a broad skyline, never the same, but always the same.

(Philadelphia) sky sketch was written for 'The Brass Project', a newly formed sextet from the Curtis Institute of Music, who invited thirty composers to contribute pieces to their inaugural performance and recording projects.
