I Come From Where the Lotus Flower Blooms
for oboe, clarinet, and bassoon
by Amir Zaheri (b. 1979) - American composer and conductor

The diatonic scale is more than just a background structure in this trio. To be sure, it serves as a reliable foundation, affording the listener frequent points of stability and repose amid delicate chromatic counterpoint. The seven-note collection, however, is itself the subject of transformation. Throughout the piece, a related scale struggles to emerge, succeeding only post-climactically in the codetta. 
Written for the Cavell Trio.
