After the Rain

for flute, violin and piano

The inspiration for this piece comes from a poem that describes the aftermath of a summer storm. The central image is a single drop of water that sparkles in a beam of sunlight. This music, however, begins with aggressive and unsettled sections that depict the turbulence of a summer storm. Eventually, this unsettled feeling gives way to a briskly flowing violin melody that is accompanied by rain-like figurations in the flute and piano parts. Finally, as this cloudburst passes, the music arrives at the intimacy and delicacy of the poem's single drop of water.
