Commissioned by Zellmer-Minnesota Orchestra Trombone Competition

"Written in April and May of 2002, Sagittarius2 is one of two pieces commissioned by the Zellmer-Minnesota Orchestra Trombone Competition....

Sagittarius2, for bass trombone and piano, is related to the life of Steven Zellmer in various ways. Yet unlike Morning Walk, which is a musical portrait of Mr. Zellmer, Sagittarius2 is not a personal portrait and, in that way, has more oblique reference to Mr. Zellmer himself. Nevertheless, the influences of Sagittarius and the number 2 were not at all oblique to Mr. Zellmer own life. He was, after all, a Sagittarius with the root number 2....

...Sagittarius2 is, first and foremost, a musical interweave of the features of Sagittarius (a fire sign, masculine in nature, governed by the planet Jupiter and symbolized by the Archer Centaur) and the number 2 (which is feminine, hidden and receptive)."
