The eleven movements of this piece were written in preparation for Barry's orchestral piece The Road (1997). The title refers to an image from childhood of sun with high wind on a remote road. This version is for four saxophones: soprano sax (doubling alto), alto sax (doubling soprano), Tenor sax (doubling alto) and baritone sax (doubling alto). A version for clarinet quartet is also available. Score and set of parts included.
