grey mo(u)rning doves

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.  It was commissioned by pianist Blair McMillen, and was premiered at The Stone in NYC.  This work has also been arranged for orchestra.

Premiere: Blair McMillen, The Stone, NYC, August 2010
Blair McMillen, Bargemusic, NYC, November 2010
