Abstract/Artist Statement

A tree is one of the greatest symbols of life, depicting its longevity and susceptibility to death, its integrity and its fragility, as well as following the circle of death to new life. “The Tree of Life” follows the life of a tree, beginning with the tree’s birth and development, followed by its confrontation with disaster, concluding with the inheritance of new life found in the successors of the Tree of Life. The piece musically conveys all of the aspects of the Circle of Life, from life to death to new life.
