The Crescent Leaf
A string quartet inspired by the partial solar eclipse I experienced in Boulder in 2017. As the light filtered through the trees, all of the leaves cast sublime crescent shadows on the ground. Combined with the muted lighting of the partial sunlight, it created a truly ethereal world that I’d never experienced. This piece also describes a life decision, as at the same point I decided to return to university to pursue music composition.
A piece for flute, oboe, harp, and viola that was written to capture the fluid nature of dreams.
A piece for symphony orchestra that captures the flow of water, through its tranquil and calm rivers to its cascading and violent waterfalls.
