4. Rusk, 3.21

Rusk (composed September 2013) is a chamber piece that elicits luscious lyricism and a wonderful palette of colorful, quiet twitterings from the ensemble. Evocative and dazzlingly in its fleeting dexterous scalular fragments, the music effortlessly amplifies the emotional ambience of the post-minimalist moodiness and offering handsome contrasts. It is a meaningful, robust, solidly wrought piece infused with moments of searing reflection and luxurious sensuality. It is filled with compelling music, gripping drama and imaginative staging of its themes and special effects, and features acrobatics with a high level of entertainment.
