Avian Moments

Avian Moments

Avian Moments.  for flute quartet:  piccolo, Flute in C, Alto Flute and Bass Flute.  Three short movements.  

Twittering, fluttering, trilling, floating upwards, spiraling in and out of tonality, these three short pieces mimic and explore birdsong, including the multi-phonics produced by an avian syrinx.  This work is dedicated to Jayn Rosenfeld, flutist extraordinaire.
