Hinse Mutter - "Ad terra" for Saxophone Quartet. "Ad terra" was first performed in November 2017 at the Grachtenfestival (Amsterdam, Netherlands) by the Keuris Quartet, in a joint commission by the Grachtenfestival and Gaudeamus Muziekweek. "Ad terra" imagines the creation in the sun of individual photons and the sometimes thousands of years long struggle they have: bouncing around on their way from the core of the sun to the outer layers before finally being released and flying towards Earth.
