Product details

In this work, I try to capture the character of Australia's flying foxes. It can be preceded by a read poem (written by Cathy Applegate) which sets the mood and helps interpret the music, which is programmatic. The lively music is interrupted by a slower, sleepy section when the bats are asleep, before taking off again with a whirl of playful cheekiness.

Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 digital (PDF) facsimile score (10p. -- A4 (portrait))

Difficulty: Advanced — Some of the violin line is very high, but could easier be adapted for intermediate students

Duration: 4 min.

First performance by Monica Naselow, Anastasia Coroneo, Netanela Mizrahi, Cathy Applegate — 14 Mar 18. Araluen Arts Centre, Alice Springs, NT

The composer notes the following styles, genres, influences, etc associated with the work:
Tonal music, easily accessible to families.

This is an arrangement of one of the movements from my orchestral suite, The Wetlands Suite. I was asked to make this arrangement by violinist, Monica Naselow, who wished to include the work in the program for a Central Australian tour in 2018.
