" Wildflowers, by Kenneth Frazelle is a set of ten characterizations of native plants from the Blue Ridge Mountains. The set forms the second of three movements of Sonata-Fantasy, a large-scale composition. A pianist may choose to program the entire group or selected numbers.
Among the cycle is "Slender Ladies' Tresses," which honors the delicate orchid with a single-handed piece. "Viper's Bugloss" is a rip-roaring rap to the rather frightening, hairy blue wildflower. And the set ends with "Deptford Pink," a lullaby depicting the miniscule wild carnation.
The Sonata-Fantasy was commissioned by the Reynolda House Museum of American Art and was premiered by the composer in 2005. " -- From kennethfrazelle.com
