Description Cherry Blossom is a haunting piece for solo flutist based on the Japanese folk song, Sakura. The folk song celebrates the beauty, joy, and grief that is sparked by transience: the cherry blossom tree’s bloom lasts for only two weeks out of every year.

The work makes extensive use of multiphonics. Hear it at Bonnie McAlvin's YouTube channel:
