Title

‘Aviary Suite’

Abstract

“Aviary Suite” consists of three movements written for two flutes. Each movement is a character piece depicting one of three different birds. “Hunt of the Hawk” is a dissonant movement intended to describe a hawk hunting for its prey. The hawk begins its hunt stealthily, spots its prey, swoops to it and finally captures it. “Morning Swans,” a much slower, more melodic movement, depicts swans gently gliding across a pond in the early morning as the fog slowly lifts from the water. My suite concludes with “Hummingbirds,” a short, busy, intentionally entertaining movement depicting the rapid movements and patterns of hummingbirds. Before the performance of this piece, I will speak briefly about its conception and my working process to compose it.
