Alexandra Olsavsky, soprano Jennifer Ruggieri, harp Text from Rumi’s A Moment of Happiness April 26, 2015 Lasallian Lounge, Chicago, IL A moment of happiness, you and I sitting on the verandah, apparently two, but one in soul, you and I. We feel the flowing water of life here, you and I, with the garden’s beauty and the birds singing. The stars will be watching us, and we will show them what it is to be a thin crescent moon. You and I unselfed, will be together, indifferent to idle speculation, you and I. The parrots of heaven will be cracking sugar as we laugh together, you and I. In one form upon this earth, and in another form in a timeless sweet land. Tweet

The title for Isurus comes from the genus name of the mako shark, which is an incredibly fast type of shark that is migratory and requires constant motion to sustain life. This reflects the energy of the music, which thrives on constant propulsion and numerous angular twists and turns. Much of the music is written in perpetually evolving mixed meters, which adds great tension and momentum to the music. Isurus is written for alto saxophone and viola, which makes for a very unique and fascinating tandem. Both instruments, which are typically relegated to inner voices, possess a wide array of timbral possibilities, and they create a rich blend between them.
