Scott actually wrote this piece to balance some of the busier, louder, and crazier pieces in this recital. “Meditation” is just that: a quiet, relaxing, contemplative piece that gives the flutist (flautist?) the opportunity to explore a soundscape through silence as well as expressivity. It is meant to be a very reflective piece, requiring sensitivity and patience. There are plenty of silences and this piece similar to Native American flute music like R. Carlos Nakai might play with hints of a couple Christian hymns. If you like, try closing your eyes during this piece and picturing the flutist (pflautist?) on a plateau overlooking some canyons as the sun rises.
