As this work was commissioned by a quartet called Audubon, the name evoked the images of birds.
“The piece has an unrestrained, gradual build-up that makes a progression with each movement, each of which has some relation to the theme. The third movement contrasts a pensive, withdrawn state with one of exuberant jungle-like vitality.” The Chautauqua Daily
“This lively music exploits Brazilian dance rhythms and bird calls in a way that liberates the soul while reminding us of our limitations.”
The Music Conoisseur
