Tilting Sunward

Tilting Sunward was inspired by the springtimes I spent living near a pond in a remote forested area. In the piece I sought to evoke the warming winds, dense chatter of frogs, gathering songbirds, dramatic arrival of geese, and more broadly, a sense of an insistent, elemental force, and the gradual stirring and revival of life.

The opportunity to give premiere performance of this work is available! Contact me to find out more.
