Alchemy in Silent Spaces

Last post for the day - there's been a lot to talk about over the past couple days!

I mentioned that I went to New York City. My brother was playing for a Wind Ensemble at Carnegie Hall, which was fantastic - this was also his third time playing there, and he's not out of college yet. He's off to a promising start.
In any case, the third piece that his group played was called Alchemy in Silent Spaces, by Steven Bryant. It's a very minimal, elegant and beautiful piece of music, and I just found a copy online. I highly, highly, highly recommend checking this one out.
