dc.description.abstract The work is in two movements and is composed in a bipolar fashion, attempting to exploit to their full advantage several binary relationships including texture (chamber vs. orchestral music, solo vs. ensemble), genre (jazz vs. contemporary symphonic music), harmonic vocabulary (tonality vs. serial and twelve-tone elements), and the idea of improvisation within an organized and fully notated structure. This work was commissioned by the Houston Symphony Orchestra and the Houston Composer's Alliance at the suggestion of Tobias Picker and received its first performance at the Miller Outdoor Theatre in Houston on June 24, 1987 under the baton of Nicklaus Wyss. The tenor saxophone soloist was Mr. Rob Lockhart. (Abstract shortened with permission of author.)
