for Brass Trio (Trumpet, F Horn, Trombone)

I’ll Write a Poem Called Yellow was composed for the Yale Brass Trio in 2008, and was named the winning brass trio for the 2009 International Brass Chamber Music Festival. It was born of my thoughts on the color, and borrows its title from Anne Sexton’s poem “Yellow.” Brightness, melancholy, humor, serenity, and bitterness are some of the aspects focused on in this three-movement work.
