A three movement suite inspired by nature consisting of The Milky Way, The Scorpion and Cygnus. The first movement is calm and flowing with smooth lyrical lines. The second movement is rhythmic and dramatic featuring strong brass and ensemble melodies, building to a noble brass chorale. The third movement opens with a beautiful lyrical alto saxophone solo and proceeds to develop into a love song with soft flowing woodwind texture and arching solo and soli phrases, appropriately concluding this contemporary 13 minute suite.
