Trillium (1999)
Composer: Elizabeth Brown
Publisher: Quetzal
Instrumentation: Flute

      Trillium is a beautiful early spring woodland wildflower with leaves and white petals in threes.
      The flute languate of Trillium is influenced by Japanese shakuhachi music and birdsong. There are a number of unusual timbres and trills, many involving microtones - a microtone is an interval smaller than a half-step. Fingerings are included when they appear for the first time and when they haven't occured for a while. Some of teh alternate timbres (indicated by an "x" above a note) sound weak or mothy; this is intentional. There is a fingering index on the last page, along with suggestions for learning some of the sequences. The piece is playable on a closed-hole, C-foot flute.
