Alisha Heng – a late night walk
Performed by Jennifer Kummer, horn

Program Note by Alisha Heng

a late-night walk for solo horn was inspired by about a month of late-night walks in Baltimore. I’d walk for about 20 minutes down to the harbor and spend about 10 minutes writing. While not everything ended up in the final piece I’d say that it’s a representative piece of work of what I think about and feel on late-night walks.
