Last night was the premier performance of On Firefly's Wing, my latest composition for solo flute. I thought the performance went wonderfully. Thank you to all of you who came out and for the kind words and congratulations. I couldn't have done it without my flautist, Emily Zacek, who came through in a pinch and put together the piece in a very short amount of time. Bravo, Emily!
As with all things in life a premier of a new piece is the end of a cycle. One piece down, infinitely more to go! I've already begun work on my next piece for the new music group Yukon, for whom I wrote Sofa awhile back. I'm very excited to explore the depths of their abilities not just as musicians, but as actors and performers. More details will surely emerge as the compositional process continues...
