Composer Dennis Aman's Sextet (Cloud Atlas) explores simple structures with earnest playfulness. Aman employs an (occasionally quirky) modal harmonic language to striking effect, moving the listener between puckish engagement and mindful introspection.

Sextet (Cloud Atlas) for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Piano, Violin, and Cello was written in 2011 and is in six movements. Performed by Jill Heinke (Flute), Kyle Bruckmann (Oboe), Bill Kalinkos (Clarinet), Luciano Chessa (Piano), Elizabeth Choi (Violin) and Hannah Addario-Berry (Cello).

Recommended listening for fans of Lou Harrison, Steve Reich, and Zoe Keating.
