Quarter Tone Saxophone

Distance Like a Fiction - Richard Power

A duet for alto saxophone and flute, with quarter tones for both instruments. Commissioned by The Awae Duo.

Program note:

"Great isolated alter line forms that stand alone on a great mesa with the immensities of blue around and above them and that strange red earth making such almost unearthly foregrounds. The spaces are so huge here and so simple and details are so clear that nothing seems far off, and distance is like a fiction for the eye.”  - Marsden Hartley

The recording shown here was performed by The Awea Duo
