Nathan Chan at Opus 24

For the Better is a quintet for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, and Contrabass. I composed the piece as a poignant musical interpretation of hardships leading to positive outcomes. There is no particular image or moment that the piece portrays; rather it is up to the audience to interpret it how they will. There are a few different sections with varying melodies and textures, meant to depict a range of emotions. This is my first composition to be performed, which is certainly a very exciting and groundbreaking experience for me in my composition career.”
