In the Zone

In The Zone is a reverent nod to the popular instrumental form of the late Renaissance and early Baroque, the canzone. Often associated with the early precursors of modern brass instruments, the instrumental canzone was a form often dominated by contrapuntal and imitative textures. In The Zone is a two-movement work exploring those aspects of counterpoint, imitation, and polyphony so often found in those late-Renaissance forms – here intensified, transformed, and woven into a virtuoso vehicle for brass quintet. The work┬áis dedicated to the Meridian Arts Ensemble.
