Quicksilver is a perpetual motion movement for soprano saxophone, exploiting the idiomatic fluid legato and the singing, biting staccato.

Reminiscence explores the horn's historical dual role as an instrument of noble
lines and jagged fanfares, while utilizing a great deal of the instrument's expansive range.
