This piece was performed on Orpheus’ 2019, Opening Night concert at Carnegie Hall. The work employed drone-like wind intonations and charted an engaging course of shifting dissonances across four delineated sections. Ms. Montgomery describes this commission as “a great opportunity to contribute to the tradition of writing a piece based on season, as change and rotation is something that we all experience as humans.” She noted that the work is “a musical exploration of both the external and internal season.”
