Powers: Between Spring And Summer

Between Spring and Summer

Saxophone quartet
composed 2005

catalog number H-B1131
duration: approx. 10 minutes
Purchase at J. W. Pepper; $24.00


Between Spring and Summer was commissioned by Cory Barnfield, the soprano saxophonist of the Louisville Saxophone Quartet.

The picturesque title reflects nothing more significant than the fact that most of the early sketches for the quartet were written in late May 2005 (no longer spring but not quite summer yet). The final score of the suite was begun in late June and completed on July 2, and as such, perhaps belongs more to summer than spring.
