This masterfully written original piece by Brenda Austin will provide challenges both technical and musical for your advanced ensembles, and an auditory delight for audiences. The unsettled, lyric melody keeps listeners engaged by never falling quite where they expect, a feeling only enhanced by the middle section in 5/4. Unexpected harmonies add to the sense of longing and heighten the tension, which eases but remains unresolved at the last. An absolutely stunning work! 78 measures.
