Wooded Walk Upon the Advancement of the Autumn Equinox By Andrew Feazelle
Paperback: $7.99
Ships in 3-5 business days
‘Wooded Walk Upon the Advancement of the Autumn Equinox’ is a short piece for clarinet and pianoforte of approximately four minutes and twenty seconds of length, written in the late... More > summer of two thousand and thirteen by the composer Andrew Feazelle. Reflections of Bax, Vaughn Williams, and Walton are displayed as the composer describes a walk – companionless; perhaps comfortless – along a deep wooded path, cooled from the advent of the fall season. Brief moments of excitement, of romance and nobility do occur, yet there is always present the capitulation and reconversion to darkness. The sun is of little warmth, what little there is through the leaves actively dressing for the equinox, that but wisps of chilled air, dilute with the smell of chimney smoke, keep the walker roused, contriving thoughts of a hot, savory meal and a fireplace to have it by. {Artwork by J.A.
