Fear of Flowers

Music for Solo Piano

This is a virtuosic work for piano solo that is beautifully performed by Margaret Cheng Tuttle. The title comes from a dream I had in which a group of hikers encountered the most beautiful flowers imaginable and while they enjoyed them immensely at first, they soon became fearful that the stunning beauty would soon be lost, and that they would be inconsolable when the beauty was gone. The fear became the dominant emotion, and they started to avoid them at all cost.
