Program Notes

This single-movement work derives its title from the Snoqualmie Pass, a route through the Cascade Mountains in Washington. The opening alternates between the piano’s bold chords and the saxophone’s melodic declarations, material that is presented throughout. Just as a visitor to the Snoqualmie area experiences rugged mountains, powerful waterfalls, and serene valleys, the music travels through rigorous as well as tranquil passages.

Snoqualmie Passages is dedicated to saxophonist Caroline Taylor, who premiered it at Ouachita Baptist University with pianist Lei Cai.
