Quick Overview

Krzywicki uses haiku-like poems by W. S. Merwin and authentic haiku by the great Japanese poet Basho to create five evocative movements, each descriptive of a bird(s) in nature at a particular time of day, the succession creating a dawn-to-moonlight cycle. While not directly quoting a given bird's song, hints can be heard throughout. Master flutist Jeffrey Khaner, who premiered the work in Philadelphia, has recorded it on the all-Krzywicki "Alchemy" CD (Albany Records). Listen to snippets on For advanced performers. Dur.: 17'
