Hyacinth

instrumentation :  flute + piano

2013
duration :  6'
commissioned by Bethanne Walker and Marti Epstein
premiere :  Spring, 2014


        Like many of my pieces inspired by flowers, Hyacinth adopts the form of the plant. Here there is a central stalk from which small branches shoot off. The blossoms are densest closer to the stalk, but they thin as they grow outward.
        Hyacinth is dedicated with gratitude to Bethanne and Marti.
