Today is the world premiere of "Pictures of the Floating World" for sax quartet and percussion quartet here in Fort Collins. I am honored to have this being performed by not one, but two outstanding ensembles: the Oasis Quartet and the Vasanta Percussion Quartet. This is part of the 2nd biennial Aries Composers Festival here at Colorado State University. Hope to see you there!
