Albert, A. - Acadian Dreams
|INSTRUMENTATION:||Flute and Piano|
"Acadian Dreams" was commissioned by flutist, Rebecca Jeffreys, in honor of her father whose lineage is from Acadia. This one movement work is programatic and tells, through music, the history of the Acadian people immigrating from France to Nova Scotia in the 1600s. Longfellow composed his epic poem, "Evangeline", based on the the Acadian people, and it ends in the contemporary influence of Zydeco music in New Orleans.
