""Equally appealing are the three highly descriptive pieces that form Peter Ware's 'Forest Scenes', the final section, Woodchuck Blues, being a wonderful, tongue-in-cheek look at a lazy blues." -Fanfare

"Its slow unfolding course, in predominantly long violin phrases, has a cobra-like power to hypnotise."   - Allan Clive Jones, Classical Guitar
" of the most compelling things I have heard in years for flute & guitar. . . there is this same free exchange of tensions- moving from the calm to the very tense. Musical ideas are worked out in a very evocative way. Played properly this music will dazzle an audience and thrill the players."
-J. Bent, Soundboard

This evocative work was inspired by the writings of Carlos Castaneda.  In a variation form, it opens and closes with an extensive violin/flute solo of meditative character.  Exotic scales along with portamento convey a primitive, near eastern quality.  It was commissioned with a Consortium Commission Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. 
The work is recorded on the Acoma
