Triple Flute Concerto, solo C flutes, solo alto flute, string orchestra, full score
I Andante Wondrous Child – Vivace Ominous Exuberance II Adagio Stolen Innocence III Allegretto Flickering Hope
“I am deeply concerned for the multitude of desperate youth who are living in pain and suffering as their lives are being abused and violated. Born pure and innocent and energetic, many are subjected to humiliation, discrimination and mistreatment, living in such situations as poverty, lack of education, lack of jobs, ignorance, split families, inadequate child labor laws, extreme religious practices, war, and ultimately, greedy perpetrators. I anger at lucrative global human trafficking that includes widespread abduction of children to be sold as sex slaves or into forced labor on farms and in factories. It is my intent that the sadness, grief, and hope expressed in this music will help increase general awareness and encourage persons and organizations to alleviate the suffering both in the United States and throughout the world.”
