John G. Scott

I performed Quiet City many years ago and, to this day, consider that performance one of the artistic highlights of my musical life. To construe the piece as a "tribute to an American city" is, I believe, to totally miss the deeper meaning of the music. The piece is about reflecting on the meaning of life in an atmosphere of solitude, and to come to the poignant realization that ones's choices in life have been irreparably compromised.
