One of Garrop's early compositions was a saxophone quartet, naturally enough, as she was then a high school saxophone player. When commissioned by the Capitol Quartet, Garrop thought to recapture the sense of soaring that was evidenced in that earlier work, and found herself contemplating the story of Daedalus and Icarus. The two-movement work is a series of piquant and brooding episodes portraying Icarus' tragic voyage and the sorrowful aftermath..The ensemble gave Garrop's alluring brainstorm a performance of riveting intensity.
