Distant Call

for solo alto Saxophone

Program notes:

The composition is inspired by the feeling of a desired isolation, like being alone between the trees on a high heel or a mountain. The silence, the distant echoes from afar and the low voices from the isolated environment make me feel a vague nostalgia. There is always a mystery in this calm atmosphere: but as time passes, I realize that there is a strong hidden intensity in silence. The unspecified mysterious atmosphere desires to reveal itself.
