Reflections

  • Opus 25
  • Composed 1982
  • Duration 6'
  • Flute alone

Notes:

  • Variations on an ancient Norwegian chant. Written outdoors at Artpark, NY.

  • Reflections is a series of free variations on a short sequence from the ancient Norwegian Olavs-fest in Nidaros. Most of it was written during a performing residency at Artpark, near Niagara Falls, New York, in 1982. I played for an hour out-of-doors twice a day, usually alone, but sometimes with mimes or storytellers. Each day I wrote a variation and performed it still in pencil sketch. Later, in New York City, I reordered the set and added a contrasting variation and a final section.

Kokopeli

  • Opus 43
  • Composed 1990
  • Duration 4-5'
  • NFA Newly Published Music Award, 1991.
  • Flute alone

Notes:

  • Kokopeli, the flute player, was a great mahu, or legendary hero of the Hopi, and of other Native Americans living in the Southwestern area of the United States. He is said to have led the migrations through the mountains and deserts, the sound of his flute echoing through the great canyons and cliffs. In this piece I have tried to capture some of this sense of spaciousness, and of the Hopi's deep kinship with this land. This piece has also been influenced by Native American flute songs and sounds.

Winter Spirits

  • Opus 51
  • Composed 1997
  • Premiered, August 1997
  • Duration 5'
  • Flute alone

Notes:

  • Premiered, August 1997, by Jeffrey Khaner at the National Flute Association's Convention in Chicago, IL.

  • There is a picture by the marvelous artist Maria Buchfink of a Native American flute player; from his flute rises a cloud of kachinas and totem spirits. This piece has also risen from his notes, and it is indeed influenced by Native American music. The idea of the flute invoking beneficial spirits, be they kachinas or any others, is a very natural one. Such spirits are an accepted and valued part of life in most of the world, and the flute has been used to honor and invite their presence for countless ages.
