    Memories from the Continents
    play Czech memory
    play Pueblo memory
    $39.99 order now

    Memories from the Continents is a fabric of childhood memories about music woven from the seven continents of our planet to help promote understanding among the peoples of our world. Native speakers from each continent generously offered their stories for this composition.

    The languages are Korean, Czechoslovakian, Yoruban, English, Penguin, Spanish, and Tiwa, one of the ancient languages of indigenous North Americans. In the Yoruban section, many of the flute parts reflect the rhythms and sounds of various percussion instruments. Parts of the Antarctica section are written as a structured collective improvisation, fun for the flutists as they take on the characters of penguins. Different flutes carry the melodies for each section.

    The styles of music reflect the places of the stories and the score and parts include the translations of all the memories. Because no native human language exists in Antarctica, the translation into English was courtesy of Lila, who at age four and one-half, could best interpret the language of penguins.

    Memories from the Continents was commissioned by the Santa Fe Flute Choir sponsored by Santa Fe Pro Musica. The Santa Fe Flute Choir, directed by Carol Redman, premiered the work in 2010.

    Solo Flute/Piccolo, Flute 1, Flute 2, Flute 3, Alto Flute 1, Alto Flute 2, and bass flute. Flute 4 is provided as an alternate part for Alto Flute 2. Parts accommodate a wide range of playing levels, from advanced to Flute 3 as the easiest level. About 10 minutes.

    Cloud Dances (flute, oboe, clarinet, horn in F, and bassoon)

    Cloud Dances was influenced by the ever-changing, always beautiful clouds in the skies of Santa Fe. The dances reflect the visuals in different shapes, colors, and moods of four time spans.

Dance 3 in 7/8 presents a somewhat unexpected cloud experience with a regular irregular beat. Dance 4 slowly smooths out a moving harmonic cloud cover across the horizons.
