Abating Shadows

for Clarinet, Harp, and Vibraphone (2020)

Duration: 9'

Commissioned by the Lyra Society’s Costello Competition for Composition. Abating Shadows begins reluctantly, with hesitant lines stretching out like long shadows at dawn. After brighter sounds temporarily drive these shadows away, the opening reemerges transformed, now majestic and forward-looking.
