Celebration of Flight for Flute and Alto Saxophone - This work commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Wright Brothers' first controlled flight by an aircraft using its own power. The first movement, “Inspirations”, musically represents the influences on our imagination to fly like a bird. The second movement, “Experiments”, begins with a four-measure theme that goes through a number of transformations throughout the movement. It represents the basic idea of the Wright Flyer and its adjustments made to enable it to fly with control. The last movement, “Triumphs”, alternates a celebratory section in 7/8 and 6/8 with a sustained “melody of flight”. Advanced
