Performers Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Meeelaan, a work for bassoon and string quartet, gets its name from Milan (Turkovic), the bassoonist who commissioned the work. Turkovic and Marsalis had collaborated during a tour of the US during the spring of 1998 where their ensemble performed A Fiddler's Tale by Marsalis. This led to Turkovic requesting that Marsalis write a work. The quintet has been performed around the world and is full of alterations gradually inserted by the composer.
