...su innocent X...* (2012)
Composer: Donald J. Stewart
Saxophone quartet (SATB)

...based on Francis Bacon's Study after Innocent X where the vertical striations creat a scrim hiding the subject matter..the scrim becomes part of the subject itself...as if glimpsing something below a surface concealed by wawes.

...bright reflections of the sun explode off the surface, temporarily breaking the view...creating a glimpse of the sun itself...a reverberation or afterglow, that slowly fades from your retina...

Donald Stewart

...su innocent X was premiered by Quasar on March 13 2013 in Seattle as part of the Washington Composers Forum's Transport series.
