Gap Duo, consisting of Australian Saxophonist Jessica Voigt-Page and American Saxophonist Elizabeth Rosinbum is an ensemble established to showcase new works for the saxophone in various settings. Based out of Austin Texas, Gap Duo seeks to promote local composers and is presenting a program of pieces arranged for them by two Texas-based composers.

“Four Woodland Sketches” by Michael Mikulka, was originally written for two flutes but has been arranged for two soprano saxophones for this conference. Each of the four movements represents a different character or emotion, ranging from Messiaen-like birdsong in the first and second movements to a high-energy race in the fourth movement. “Morse Code Pop,” originally scored for Alto saxophone and Baritone Saxophone, for has been re-invented by Houston composer Rob Smith specifically for this conference and placed into the soprano and alto voices of the saxophone. “Morse Code Pop” features aggressive articulated syncopation with a lyrical, floating middle section. The two drastically different pieces showcase the saxophone’s versatility as an instrument capable of lyrical, soaring melodies and aggressively articulated syncopated lines.
