Serenade

Description

Serenade was commissioned and premiered by the Zagros Ensemble in 2008.

The short and subtle Serenade explores the concepts of cantabile and lightness – the two characteristic features of serenades. The piece’s use of natural string harmonics creates the feeling of transparency in the music, while the melodic focus is on the woodwinds.
