Dolos

For Saxophone Quartet

Performance Note

Dolos is an ancient God of mischief, and this piece represents just that. It has a feeling of never being resolved, or finishing a section. It always leaves the audience on the edge of their seat, trying to anticipate what's to come. It focuses around two main thematic ideas- an Eastern European melodic line, and a funky, jamming line. These represent Dolos's chaos, fun, and annoyance, as the melodic lines are always bouncing around.


Dolos was completed on October 29, 2016
