War Ends – Song Endures for Flute and Piano score and part


War Ends Song Endures Is dedicated to the valiant people of Ukraine in their current fight to retain their sovereignty. The single movement begins with the ad libitum incantation of an ancient Ukrainian chant on Alto Flute. It is interrupted by an Agitato with shrieks and multiphonics on the C Flute and soaring piano passages and clusters that represent missile strikes and explosions. We hear excerpts, some on piccolo, of traditional Ukrainian folk songs, including the National Anthem of Ukraine, with interruptions by the Agitato with its cataclysmic inference.
