The View from Six Windows

flute, B-flat clarinet, 2 violins, viola, cello (2016)

This sextet reflects what I think I saw during my final visit to the house in which I grew up, though I may be entirely wrong about that. The piece begins life in the White Note Universe. A single flat appears in measure 7; more emerge in measure 10. The first sharp materializes in measure 11, not far from the big sycamore tree in the back yard that proved to be impossible to climb.
