Written and premiered in 1990, Quadrivalence is a masterful compositional statement from a renowned composer/teacher. The musical style is derived from the 12-tone school. Dr. Rivard makes excellent use of modern brass performance techniques such as singing while playing, improvisation, and full use of the range of the bass trombone. Composed for and dedicated to Randall Hawes. Published by Encore Music Publishers.
