Tell no more of Enchanted Days (1992), Mark Engebretson

Tell No More of Enchanted Days was written in 1992 for the Vienna Saxophone Quartet. It is in four movements of different forms, all of which together form a single large-scale arc. The first movement is in ABA form, the second in "circular" form (it has a melody, then an improvisation section which repeats ad libitum, then a return to the melody), the third movement was conceived of in the shape of an abstract line drawing, and the fourth is a simple arc. The piece, though not programmatic, was inspired by James Joyce's A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. Read more »
