Four Movements: Mysterious, Furiously, Wisping, Death Song
approx. 15 minutes

Crane Songs was inspired by a performance of Shirish Korde‘s Tenderness of Cranes at the Festival of New American Music in 2006. The resulting work is a microcosm of solo flute pieces derived from material used in Korde’s original setting. Wisping and fleeting, this work draws the listener in to mysterious and elegant scenes of a crane.

Crane Songs was premiered October 21, 2015 by Cathie Apple.
