About this Piece

Described by the composer as a “quiet scherzo,” Miller’s original composition Fireflies first appeared on a recording with pieces for organ and percussion — in that way serving as a solo intermezzo between more boisterous ensemble pieces. Utilizing the high flute stops, recognizable motives playfully move in and out of different modal scales, blending into an overall impressionistic harmony.
