ARIA RITES (2015)
Commissioned in 2014 by Bala Brass. UNPREMIERED (as of 2015 December). 13'
Out of thickets of fidgety recitativo arise four lyrical solos: first in the trumpet, then the horn, tuba, and trombone. The restless fanfare in between is abridged, remixed, chopped up, and inverted to clear the air, and prepare the ear, for these wordless songs.
