The title track, by New York composer Faye-Ellen Silverman, features an array of coloristic devices, including contrasting dynamics, articulations, trills, flutter tonguing and mutes. The first movement begins with a dramatic proclamation showcased by wide interval leaps. The second movement is more lyrical, although the interval structures from the opening movement return at the end. The final movement is lively in character and, this time, more consonant.

Performers:THOMAS PFOTENHAUER, trumpet
VINCENT FUH, piano
