16. Mainsail, 6.42

Mainsail (composed July 2013) is a orchestration for saxophone quintet of a pre-existing piano solo. It elicits a luscious lyricism and colorful post-minimalist colors that undulating ceaselessly in playful exchanges of inner-moving voices within the homogenous instrumental ensemble of saxophones. The evocative, handsome setting is an effortless amplification of emotional ambience offering striking contrasts. It is a meaningful work for the ensemble infused with moments of searing reflection and luxurious sensuality.
