Indigo Bunting
Brad Balliett 
for bassoon and piano

“Lancaster, Massachusetts, June, 7:50 AM: surrounded on both sides by low-rise seasonal forest, a long and naked stretch of scrubby grasslands is bisected by dusty walking path. Miniature mesas dot the horizon. It’s getting very bright, and in the hazy air hang songs of Indigo Buntings, Prairie Warblers, Field Sparrows, Grasshopper Sparrows, and Towhees. And by the road — a House Wren, inflamed, bursting with love or anger.”
