Zephyr (for brass quintet, 1990)

Emerald City Brass Quintet
Paul Ely Smith


I wrote this piece while I was at UCSD, but I had my friend David Hensler's brass quintet, Emerald City Brass Quintet, in Seattle in mind when I composed it.  There are various train-related sounds here, and the title refers to a train that runs between Chicago and San Francisco.
