Description

Composer's Note:

Three Pieces in Crystal was composed for the Mahler/Fedson Duo. Since Ms. Mahler, flutist, is also a geologist, it was only fitting that the work be based on various stones. Each movement is a representation of the composer’s impressions of three different crystals; amethyst, citrine, and rose quartz. Through legend, amethyst is associated with intellectual power or clear headed thinking. Citrine is associated with the solar plexus, or pit of the stomach, where the soul is said to be seated. And, rose quartz is said to be related to love, having an association with the heart.
