This is the second version of a work originally composed for the outlandish combination of flute, contrabassoon, brass quartet, viola and cello; it seemed like a good idea to make a version that might actually one day be performed. It is a setting of John Yau’s poem “Andalusia”—well, a setting of three parts, anyway (there are eight in total, of which five were set in the previous version). I have virtually nothing to say about the piece itself except that I hope its lack of seriousness and utter dearth of compositional profundity are taken as virtues as much as vices. In any case, it’s short.
