This piece was composed for saxophonist Eleri Ann Evans and bass clarinetists Henri Bok and Luis Afonso Montanha for premiere performance at the Festival Musica nas Montanhas in Pocos de Caldas, Brasil in January, 2012. I was happy to have the opportunity to collaborate again with Henri and Ann, who have performed extensively as a duo, as have Henri and Luis -- three great artists performing on two types of instruments which share many tonal qualities but also proclaim the distinctive voices of each instrument and each performer. The title of this piece, Possivel a Rosa (English translation is “The Possible Rose”) comes from the writings about the mystery of the Holy Trinity by the 15th century theologian Nicholas of Cusa, who compared the Trinity to three distinct entities of a rose: “the possible rose, the existing rose, and the rose which is the union of the two.” I liked the way that image evoked a kind of living perfection that doesn’t seek correctness but something more beautiful.
