The title for "The Whispering Wind" comes from a line in the poem "Miracle Hill", by Emerson Blackhorse Mitchell. Composed in 2001, the composition begins with small, "echo-like" statements. Gradually, these melodic fragments, or cells, elongate with slowly graduated harmonies. As new ideas are introduced into the composition, older fragments "whisper" back in various juxtapositions, simultanaeities, and orchestral colorings.
Composer: Michael Gatonska
