It is said that nature’s most profound beauty lies in its impermanence, and The Fall of a Flower is a meditative, spacious reflection on this philosophical notion - a spiritual evocation of the universal cycle of life, death and rebirth. Ideas flourish and fade: nothing remains as it was, with colourful chords and winding violin duets fading into an eternal sunset, where only stillness remains.

Composer: Rhiannon Randle
