Description

Composer's Note:

The underlying concept of the piece is one of a wind-borne dance, the image being that of a hawk circling the thermal currents which are activated, at times, by sudden shifts or vagaries of the winds. The piano suggests the arrival of another wind dancer and subsequent playful interaction, alternatively providing a sustaining undercurrent for the soloist. However, I do not consider the work to be primarily programmatic, but rather an expression of loss and celebration of a vibrant life.
