THE FLAMES OF THE SUN MAKE THE DESERT FLOWER HYSTERICAL (2013) Concert Paraphrase for Solo Piano Commissioned by Vicki Ray Duration: 4 Minutes The Flames of the Sun Make the Desert Flower Hysterical was commissioned by one of Los Angeles’ most valiant new music pianists and long-time friend, Vicki Ray.  It is a transcription of one of her favorite movements from my piano quartet, The King of the Sun, rather in the spirit of a 19th century virtuoso concert paraphrase.
