Quietly Revealed was written in memory of my teacher Alan Stout who died in February 2018. Stout was an unassuming individual, whose vast knowledge of music served to inspire a generation of composers who worked under his guidance at Northwestern University. Deeply embedded in the harmonic fabric of the piece is a chord progression from his Suite for Saxophone and Organ (1973) written for the wedding of John Sampen and Marilyn Shrude. Quietly Revealed was premiered in July 2018 at the World Saxophone Congress in Zagreb, Croatia by John Sampen, Brianna Buck, Claire Salli, Drew Hosler and Jonathan Kierspe.
