Preview of Toub Sax Quartet

Yesterday I was pleasantly surprised by an email from composer David Toub which included a sneak peak at his upcoming Sax Quartet.  I don’t want to give away any “spoilers” but I won’t hesitate to say this work is epic, easily one of my favorites of David’s.  The work includes everything I love about minimalism (PM).  That is, my taste of PM, and classical music in general, and actually all things artistic, leans toward a cerebral approach.  I don’t view that as a game or trying to be elititist.  It simply allows the listener to spend more time with a work; to spend more time than I would with some PM which only has surface qualities.
