net, Blue, glass

Brass quintet

Program notes:

“net, Blue, glass” is a piece of iron iridescence. Writing this music was an attempt to fortify the intricate nanostructures and preserve the overwhelming brilliance of a blue morpho butterfly’s wings through a brass quintet.

Written for David Vess and the Chimera Concert Series. Premiered on January 16, 2016 at the Boston Conservatory.

Michael Durgin, trumpet
Matthew Nishida, trumpet
Emily Crompton, horn
Neil Parsons, trombone
David Vess, tuba
