Composer: Dave Brubeck

Story

"The Desert and the Parched Land" is a transcription by cellist Derek Snyder of Dave and Matthew Brubeck's piano improvisation from the recording "Quiet as the Moon." It is originally drawn from a soprano solo in Dave Brubeck's Mass, " To Hope!," composed in 1979. This recording is from our first CD, EXPLORATIONS - a live performance at Southampton's Rodgers Memorial Library in December 2009.
