Pulitzer Prize and GRAMMY award-winning composer Aaron Jay Kernis's 'Flute Concerto' was inspired by and written for Marina Piccinini. Its four movements explore darker and lighter elements in various dance forms, most of which begin calmly but end up spiraling out of control. Kernis describes the song like 'Air' as 'a love letter to the flute'. His 'Second Symphony' was composed at the time of the Persian Gulf War and signified a powerful shift of tone in his music. Non-programmatic but linear and compact, it forms a part of his 'War Pieces' of 1991-95.
