Description: A swale is a meadow or a marsh where there is nourishment and moisture and therefore, a rich diversity of plant life. This swale is made from swatches which are reminiscent of this diversity and give a sense of a tour through the various flute styles - Irish, jazz, rhythmic, lyrical... Flute Swale was composed for Andrew Bolotowsky who premiered it in New York City.
