Living Room Music is a set of eleven compositions to be performed by seven instruments (wind quartet plus piano trio) for an intimate audience over the course of an evening, preferably in an intimate space. The title borrows from the salon music of the eighteenth century, wherein short compositions, usually dance-like or narrative in nature, were performed in salons, or living rooms. LRM begins with the full septet, breaking apart into quartets, trios, duets, and solos, and ending with a triumphant return of the full ensemble
