This is a piece composed for brass quintet that is meant to depict a desert environment. Someone has wandered off into the Sahara and has gotten lost. The toils and struggles of the desert are overbearing and tedious. The piece takes you through the realization of being lost, to the grand relief of escape. I believe that brass can capture the mood accturately and can depict the edginess and heaviness of the desert.


If you have performed this piece, please feel free to send me a copy as I will be thrilled to post it on my site under the composition!
