Quidnet Shadows (2009) for flugelhorn and harp is dedicated to Chris Gekker.
The title refers to Quidnet, a region of Nantucket Island, Massachusetts. This work is one of a variety of pieces deeply connected to the landscape of Nantucket. Specifically, it is music inspired by beach shadows cast in evening light. A ritornello opens the piece and returns twice. In between these ritornelli are two mobiles, in which the music of the ritornello is developed in a freely, shadowing discourse between the two instruments.
