GULFSTREAM for clarinet, violin, cello and piano (2007)

"The aquatic inspiration is clear in the urgent running piano figure that opens the work, which soon passes to the cello and other instruments. This single-movement work suggests a more astringent Michael Torke, with populist jazz- minimalist touches and knotty contrapuntal vigor amid the driving momentum. The tempo slows down—much like the title current—for a more lyrical theme, played with pure and refined tone by violinist Yu."
