In three movements, Romantic Sonata - Poems of Light (flute and piano) communicates how light can be a metaphor for the emotional and spiritual aspects of life.  There are also three paintings - also created by the composer - joining hearing with sight as a poetic way of understanding ideas and emotions.

Of Light and Shadow possesses a monothematic sonata design (rather than a two-theme structure), with a primary musical theme that is developed, and a brief closing section.  Colors in the Clouds, the second movement of the work, does not differ greatly in tempo from the first movement, but rather is more relaxed in character.  A slower middle section of this movement explores tone color through expressive use of extended techniques for the flute.  Prism of the Heart is variation of the classical chaconne, with an introduction and a closing section.  The conclusion of the first movement is developed and becomes the closing section of the third movement.  This connects the first and third movements, bringing one back to where one started, yet experiencing change after the musical journey. 

Thescore and flute part in this edition are arranged to be printeddouble-sided, with correct page turns, directly from the PDF.
