Echoi

Ensemble: Horn solo
Duration: 1:00

Program Notes:

Echoi (2011) for horn solo and hummed voice is an extremely quiet work that exists within the overtones of the horn timbre. From explosive initial outbursts, imaginary resonances of the sound remain, exposing hidden melodies.

Echoi was written for Michelle McQuade Dewhirst.

Premiere: March 11, 2012
