Saxophone quartet of moderate difficulty but great emotional gravity.
Sospiri (It. 'sighs') was written for a good friend of mine when he lost
his mother to cancer. I myself had lost a profound influence on my life,
my grandfather, to cancer and I felt I shared his hardship. I had never
actually seen his mother, but I felt his loss. The dedication reads:
"In memory of a woman I had never met."
