About this work

This is a lively 7-part rondo with a short introduction composed in 2021. There are three common threads thoughout: a hommage to the Jazz Era, a strict adherence to the formal models of the Classical Era, and abundant doses of humor. This piece’s well-suited as the last piece of a concert or as an encore.

It was originally written for saxophone quartet and later rescored for string quartet for a performance opportunity that never materialized. In such form it was selected finalist at the 2nd Saad Haddad Prize (NYC, 2024). Dr. Haddad convinced me to restore it to its original saxophone quartet instrumentation.
