"clever, funky, jazzy and virtuosic"
Daily Gazette, Geraldine Freeman

The music of American composer Andrea Reinkemeyer “offers a luminous glimpse of the next world” (Fanfare Magazine) as it “explores a reverent sound world that hovers just above the brink of silence” (Second Inversion), using “spare, melancholy passages to traverse a complex emotional landscape” (Eugene Weekly) “from reverence and supplication to mournfulness despair” (textura).

Red Flame for Flute and Marimba (2021)

Red Flame for Flute and Marimba (2021)

Red Flame for Flute and Marimba (2021) was commissioned by Dr. Abigail Sperling with support from the Oregon Arts Commission. This piece draws inspiration from three bird species found in Oregon, notable for their vibrant red markings and precarious position on conservation watchlists: rfous hummingbird (selasphorus rufus), Anna's humminbird (calypte anna), and ferruginous hawk (buteo regalis). In nature, bright colors often signal a warning to predators, however, these birds were chosen as a warning for humans who must take meaningful action on climate change to protect ourselves and these beautiful animals. — Andrea Reinkemeyer
