Concertino for Baritone Saxophone – Premiere Performance

I can’t begin to express my gratitude to Taylor Huitema for premiering my Concertino for Bari Sax yesterday! This piece was my largest project to date, at about 18 minutes long and with 33 saxophonists as part of the consortium.

It was such a pleasure collaborating with Taylor throughout this process. The piece has been over a year in the making and Taylor was constantly on call to give me feedback, record passages, and answer all my silly questions about how to write for the instrument.

And Taylor’s performance yesterday was absolutely superb! His musicality and versatility were on full display throughout the entire piece. I never knew my music could sound so good!

Thanks for everything, Taylor!! ‘Til next time!
