Giant Colored Bird III (2005) for horn octet was commissioned by and is dedicated to the Carnegie Mellon Horn Choir, Dennis Abelson, director.
The title refers to a vivid mental image of a large, brilliantly colored bird in the wild: both flying and unfurling its wings, while looking out over a beautiful landscape. Giant Colored Bird III is thus a joyous celebration of color and warmth.
