Numina (1991) by Daniel Godfrey
for flute, oboe, clarinet, violin, viola, and cello
West Coast premiere

Numina is in one movement with four sections. It is a tussle with, and tribute to, those quirky, ineffable, intoxicating, sometimes mischievous spirits or life impulse — numina — that spring forth when notes are strung together. Duration: 13 minutes.

— D. G.
