Program NoteWhen the Moon of Wildflowers is Full, for Flute and Cello, was composed many years ago for the wedding of dear friends that took place in a beautiful meadow in high summer in Aspen, CO, where I was a composition student at the Aspen Music Festival. The music has a light, Renaissance dance-like quality, interpreted in a contemporary vein. My experiences at the Aspen Music Festival opened the door to a life in music, and to ongoing joy in its creation.
