Work Overview

'Desert Rose' is the first movement of Four Desert Flowers, a suite of character pieces inspired by the names of wildflowers found in Australia. Named after Sturt's Desert Rose, this movement functions as a short prelude. It features oscillating, breeze-like melodic motion in the flute, supported by arid, undulating figures in the vibraphone. The movement concludes with a solitary high sustained note played by the flute depicting the innate stillness of the desert.
