The GreatBlue Heronwas inspired by the relatively large, wading bird, commonly found in North andCentral America. The name of this bird has always conjured in me an image ofsomething of such immense size and, yet, unbelievable beauty and wonder. Somethingbsoth terrifying and awe-inspiring.

        Musically speaking, this work is anarabesque, a short, single movement containing ornamentation. This term is alsoin art to describe works that contain two flowing, decorative motifs in theshape of "S" and "U". In ballet, it is used to describe the shape and movementof a spiral. The gestures of this work follow the contour of these shapes andmovements and embody the arabesque in all of these forms.
