Suite from ‘Not Quite a Sunset’ (2016)

Duration: ca. 12′
Instrumentation: flute, clarinet, piano, and bass

This suite is a collection of music from my hypertext opera Not Quite a Sunset. Because of the nature of the hypertext version of the piece, much of it is not really performable live. These four movements are selections that are heard almost exactly as written in the full opera – the opening “Prelude” for piano solo is the title track, as well as used in excerpts elsewhere. The three full ensemble movements are taken from extended dream sequences in the opera; in the full version, there is also a vocal part.
