BENEATH THE VEILED LIGHT
flute, alto saxophone, piano (about 7 minutes)
Beneath the Veiled Light (2006) was composed for Franziska Nabb, David Nabb, and Nathan Buckner, and premiered at the 14th World Saxophone Congress in Ljubljana, Slovenia. As I was working on the piece, I had in mind the famous image from the film "Casablanca", where Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman were standing and talking under a streetlamp in the fog. Although my composition is not about the movie or its story, that image inspired the title and the free-flowing, quasi-rhapsodic nature of much of this single-movement work.
Score and flute and alto saxophone parts available for purchase from J.W. Pepper.
