Utmost Attack, for tuba quartet, portrays the actual moment of shooting an arrow from a crossbow. It features powerful dynamic contrasts and especially the sforzando attack. The constant shifts of mood, tempo, rhythm, texture and sonority throughout the piece highlight three critical moments: the finger on the trigger, the release of the arrow, and the attack on the enemy.
