"The Dreams of Birds" for alto flute and piano performed during Mid-Atlantic Flute Festival 2015

 

The Dreams of Birds for alto flute and piano

LISTEN to a live recording of the work - Jenni Olson, alto flute and Bryan Pezzone,piano

Take a look at the SCORE

The Dreams of Birds explores the world of what birds might dream.  Would they dream of running, of flying to the sun?  Would they dream of being human?  I wanted to explore the possibility of bird dreams while continuing to be evocative of a bird with bird-like songs in the alto flute.  The little turns and grace notes as well as the flutter tongue played by the alto flute offer the listener the voice of the bird.  The piano, both supportive and, at times, grand, helps give flight to these dreams of birds.  It was an honor to write this piece for Jenni Olson to premiere and record.

Update on current projects

Jenni's Current Projects:

Final editing of score and parts for We Are Joy, a work commissioned by the Long Beach Camerata Singers under the direction of Dr. Robert Istad.  This work, with original text by Oliver Mayer, will receive its world premiere in October of 2015 in Long Beach, California. More details to come!

A new work for Flute choir and SATB choir commissioned by the Holland Chorale under the direction of Meredith Bowen, Ars Voce under the direction of Mark Wells, and the West Michigan Flute Association under the direction of Julie Sooy. Original text written by Oliver Mayer celebrates the Latino community in West Michigan as well as the spirit of the Latino culture in the United States. 

Double Helix for bassoon and piano was just completed by Jenni and was commissioned by bassoonist Christin Schillinger.  This work draws its inspiration from the sculpture of the same name by Long Beach sculptor Susan Hawkins. This work will receive its premiere this summer.
