Just in time for mother's day.... "A Mother's Devotion" for orchestra.
I wrote this piece last week in memory of my mother, who passed away Easter Monday. I gleamed my creative side from her, no doubt. She was an artist, photographer, and songwriter!
I started composing this piece after being inspired by a Lili Boulanger piece I heard on the radio. That was day one. On day two, I ended up writing in a different, more tonal approach. Day two simplicity irked me at first, but after orchestrating it all, I believe it works together somehow. It also gives it some development. Let me know what you think.
I hope you enjoy it! Happy Mother's Day to any moms out there.
