for brass quintet (2007)
Escape was written for the University of Maryland graduate brass quintet and was premiered at the conclusion of my Masters Degree recital. Written in a cinematic style, it depicts a rapid decent down Castle Crags (pictured below) amidst a violent storm. It works great as an opener/closer and is a blast to perform.
