Akasha (Sky)Composer: Buhr, Glenn
Performance date: March 14, 1991

Date composed: 1989


Akasha, like its companion piece Jyotir, derives from the composer’s fascination with the culture of India. Akasha (the Sanskrit word for space or sky) is a four-minute work that indeed lives up to its name, with a slowly evolving melody in the brass offset by flourishes from the woodwinds and an overall sense of spaciousness.
