Retur (1993)
Composer: Äke Pamerud
for saxophone quartet and tape

Retur, composed in 1992-93 for the Stockholm Saxophone Quartet, was commissioned by the Swedish National Concert Institute and premiered at Stockholm New Music in 1993. It is dedicated to the memory of Charlie Parker and initially built on a phrase from Parker himself on the alto sax, immediately followed by a reciprocal greeting from Jörgen Petterson (SSQ's alto player) in the form of another Parker phrase.
