Goodbye (score & parts)

Goodbye, the second movement of the ALL IN ONE SUITE, features Alto Sax 1 throughout. Goodbye is inspired by my father-in-law, who came to the US from Sweden in 1910 on a ship by himself when he was twelve. He spent two weeks at Ellis Island waiting for his older sister to pick him up. His story is interesting, but I found myself wondering how his mother must have felt when she said goodbye to him, knowing she might never see him again. That’s what the piece is about. You can listen to the recording on the DCJO CD, ALL IN ONE.
