The Dreams of Birds for alto flute and piano


The Dreams of Birds explores the world of what birds might dream.  Would they dream of running, of flying to the sun?  Would they dream of being human?  I wanted to explore the possibility of bird dreams while continuing to be evocative of a bird with bird-like songs in the alto flute.  The little turns and grace notes as well as the flutter tongue played by the alto flute offer the listener the voice of the bird.  The piano, both supportive and, at times, grand, helps give flight to these dreams of birds.  It was an honor to write this piece for Jenni Olson to premiere and record.
