SHENBLU (1987) 5'

Protone Music
solo flute
Prem: 5/16/87; Shanghai, China
Recording: 1995; GEGA
Contains an element common to both Chinese music and American jazz: the pentatonic or five-note scale. A fun piece to perform, it's success depends upon the flutist’s ability to present the changing moods from languid and expressive to intensely driving, primitive and guttural, in a multi-metered dance-like section. -Flute Talk
A tour-de-force for flute...the work is a fascinating compositional tease and a technical challenge.
-The Ithaca Journal
