Review of Tale of an Unborn Child

Below is a music review by Sabrina Pena Young, of the concert at the 10th Feminist Theory and Music Symposium at University of North Carolina, Greenboro on my composition Tale of an Unborn Child for flute and piano:

Oscillating between masterful lyricism and sharp musical gestures, Tale of an Unborn Child attempted to address the difficult issue of abortion from the perspective of a woman who must face this difficult decision. At times, Tale of an Unborn Child sounded funereal and somber, with a slight touch of slowly dissipating hope, at other times, an almost manic anger seems to possess the flautist with desperate breathy gasps. Although the composer meant for the composition to represent the emotional plight of the new mother, there are many times throughout Tale of an Unborn Child where the music portrayed equally the trials of the unborn child in the woman’s body.
