with Piano; Commissioned by Brent Shires and Gail Robertson for the 2015 International Horn Symposium, Los Angeles. This piece is a commentary on the transient nature of all things. Youth, fame and fortune, success, passion, romance, all are fleeting and insubstantial - illusion in a sense. The memories rise and fall from the mists of consciousness, fragmentary, unfinished until nothing remains but a pulsating movement through light.
