1. Winter Visions
2. Spring Rounds
Winter/Spring explores the emotional and physical landscapes associated with the seasons. Winter Visions is a short meditation on an imagined winter landscape. Spring Rounds begins in the depths of the contrabass quartet with building chords out of which emerge a wailing melody. Pitches from the building chords return as rapid, ferocious walking basslines which alternate between members of the ensemble, building to a frenzied climax.
Winter/Spring was commissioned by the 2014 Louisiana Bass Fest at Louisiana State University and premiered February 9, 2014.
