About

Ecstasy of Flight captures a moment in the life of a child who longed for a companion in her isolated life in the precise middle of nowhere. She was visited by a powerful dream, of wings, the curling of the wind in the cloud-tops, the perfect peace of the blue land of the sun, and the shape of the world as one great, majestic song. That was the moment in her life from which she could look back later as an adult composer and say that it all began.
