grey mo(u)rning doves
The orchestral version of grey mo(u)rning doves is loosely based on the piano work by the same titled, which was commissioned and premiered by pianist Blair McMillen. grey mo(u)rning doves was inspired by the call of the mourning dove and late summer thunderstorms. The work begins in an atmosphere of stillness which progresses to tension, and finally erupts in a storm.
Premiere: American Symphony Orchestra, May 2011
