SWANS is a rare offering for the underserved yet beautiful medium of Two Alto Flutes and Piano. Dorff has described being warmly inspired by the exquisite grace and agility of these large instruments, as if alto flutes were the swans of the woodwind family. The work is a waltz chain, not in the traditional European sense, but rather as a series of dark jazz waltzes, always with a light-hearted lilt peeking through.
