for 2 Flutes and String Quartet (2020)
Zephyr was written for the New Downbeat new music ensemble. The word Zephyr comes from the Greek language meaning "gentle wind" or "wind from the west." Although there are many examples of gentle lyricism throughout, it is quite the fiery piece, with many other stark effects of wind and color making their appearance. As always, I find it most fun to juxtapose the romantic with the barbarous!
