Sousa Rocha, Sofia: Ante omnia

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Ante omnia for saxophone quartet - soprano, alto, tenor and baritone

    Ante omnia comes in response to a challenge to compose a new piece for some saxophone colleagues with the aim of presenting the piece at the Peças Frescas (Student Composers' Concerts).
    This is a piece with a single movement divided into two contrasting parts. Two groups of ideas are present in this work: contrast/connection and energetic/calm. The creative process contains the conflicting ideas of intuition and control, based on the interaction of these two opposing gestures.
