Honorable Mention in the 2002 NFA Newly Published Music Competition
Commissioned by Sue Blessing, Echoes in the Wind evokes the image of a solitary Native American flutist playing from a mountaintop to the valley below. This piece takes advantage of the beautiful and unique sonority of the alto flute in the upper register. The haunting quality of the alto flute conveys the elusiveness of the wind, as it ebbs and flows through this piece.
Echoes in the Wind can also be performed on concert flute or bass flute. (Concert pitch part is included). In addition, Echoes in the Wind can be performed without accompaniment.
