About

Two birds inspired this piece: Tchaikovsky's Swan and Stravinsky's Firebird. Buzzard is dedicated to my father, a high-speed pilot who loved Stravinsky's music as passionately as that of Gil Gilberto and Dave Brubeck. A real buzzard... "And as to you Life, I reckon you are the leavings of many deaths;", Walt Whitman Leaves of Grass (1900)
