Daybreak/Nocturne for Sextet

Mayse, Jon String Trio Score-3.png

Daybreak/Nocturne, for flute, Bb Clarinet, Violin, Cello, and Piano, are a cycle pair in which each movement can lead directly into the other. Daybreak, a five-part rondo, explores various methods of sound production in each of the instruments. In Nocturne, a heavy atmosphere is pierced by increasingly an aggravated cello.
