Orion Indigo

Catalog numbers: 

EBM MP156001/ HL 355062

Duration (minutes): 
Detailed Instrumentation: 
Soprano Saxophone
This work for unaccompanied soprano saxophone was written at the request of British star saxophonist Amy Dickson, who requested several composer friends write short works in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic.  Much like his saxophone concerto Rush, this work is written using materials from Fuchs' 1988 musical The Great Nebula in Orion, though it is here filtered through Duke Ellington's Mood Indigo.  Fuchs dedicates this work in honor of Amy Dickson's COVID-19 Solo Sessions.
