PROGRAM NOTE

HELL OR HIGH WATER is music rife with diabolical motives and hellish figures. Sinewy harmonies and a constant, pulsating rhythmic undercurrent drive the four saxophonists to a stinging finish, come hell or high water…

The work was written for and premiered by the Donald Sinta Quartet: Dan Graser (soprano saxophone), Zach Stern (alto), Joe Girard (tenor), and Danny Hawthorne-Foss (baritone).
