Dance of the Hedgehogs and the Wood Fairies (2017)

Commissioned by the Mizzou International Composers Festival and premiered by Alarm Will Sound

"Dance of the Hedgehogs and the Wood Fairies" is a light and lyrical dance; a slightly off-kilter waltz consisting of lines passed between solo instruments over an accompaniment of stacked 4ths and 5ths. It is inspired by an image in my mind of small woodland creatures dancing in a garden on a tranquil summer day.
