Study in Black was created to accompany a suicide dance by choreographer Marguerite Fishman at the American Dance Festival Composer/Choreographer program. The mood is dark but achieves a resignation flecked with lighter moments. Study in Black is published by Arsis Press. –JS

Press Quote:
Study in Black is a well-written composition for flute and percussion and would require two mature and musical players to perform it. It would be appropriate for either a college flute recital or a percussion recital. The publisher is to be commended on the printing of the work.”
–John Beck, Percussive Notes, Vol. 25 #1, Fall 1986
