Rebirth (2009) flute, violin, viola, and cello
This piece was inspired by the oncoming of spring after a harsh winter. The flute represents the idea of rebirth, while the strings provide back up with occasional soloistic lines. When the piece gets darker, and we first hear the alto flute. Winter is not ready to give up its hold yet. The spring theme gets weaker and becomes dominated by pedal C#s in the cello. The piece gradually regains its momentum and ends peacefully.
Recorded by Emily Fuglestad (flute/alto flute), Katelyn Kozinsky (violin), Anna Bross (viola), and Dana Shin (cello) in the spring of 2009.
