New Orchestral Work!
Meg is excited to announce that she has completed composing a piece for chamber orchestra called Phoenix Falling. This piece is inspired by the wonderful sculptures by Xu Bing recently installed at St. John the Divine in Manhattan. The sculptures had a lasting impact on her.  For days after viewing them, she kept seeing the ribbons spiraling from the sides of the beautiful phoenixes, giving them a sense of motion, and she heard music spiraling down to accompany this vision. A midi rendition of the 13 and a half minute work can be heard by going to my Audio samples page and clicking on Phoenix Falling!

Comments about "Phoenix Falling":
 “The Phoenix didn’t fall, it only rose. How [Meg] allowed the thematic materials to grow out of themselves and then participate in the successful rising and falling of the music’s intensity more than justifies the length of the piece.” - Allen Brings, composer

“I am certainly impressed. The work demonstrates a good knowledge of the orchestra and an ear for instrumental color.”  -Ronald Perera, composer
