Arabesque for Nicole "Birdflight" (2013)
Dedicated to my younger sister, Nicole. The flowing arpeggiated patterns and harmonic progressions are directly inspired by Debussy's "Two Arabesques." These long melodies imitate the swooping flight of birds, singing joyfully as they fly. A second arabesque, dedicated to my older sister, Bethany, is in progress, which will completed the set.
