Chasing Daylight (2007)
Violin, Cello, and Percussion (Marimba and Vibraphone)
The title of this piece occurred to me as my husband and I were on a road trip driving west to Ann Arbor at dusk. As we drove, it felt as if we were chasing the daylight, trying to keep the sun from setting. We were able to maintain the feeling of dusk for quite some time, until we neared home and the sun finally caught up with us.
