Composer Alejandro Guardia Jr. says, “Escapades was written as a companion piece to my tuba quartet Excursions. Very much like Excursions, Escapades uses energetic tempos and ostinati. Escapades dives into the smoother, more streamlined experience of city life.” The three movements take the musicians on a journey through stop and go rush hour traffic (I. The Daily Grind), an afternoon lull at work leading to falling asleep on the job (II. Daydreaming) and the realization that work is done for the day and it’s time to go home again (III. Quittin’ Time!).
