Double premiere on Elevate Ensemble season opener
Come hear Elevate Ensemble premiere two pieces I wrote for the ensemble as part of an exciting program inspired by Stravinsky’s Octet for Winds:
- Puppies!!! — trombone, bass trombone
- Don’t Look At — wind octet
Puppies!!! is a two-minute miniature that explores part of the Octet instrumentation in a playful series of fleeting glissandi. Don’t Look At takes this same source material and transforms it in an entirely different way, creating a longer chamber piece.
