Strom (2010) by Sven Daigger
for flute, clarinet, cello, and piano
US premiere; 2011 Earplay Donald Aird Composers Competition winner

[The composer places the quote that inspired him on the cover of his score:]

It is what you mean, isn't it: that the river is everywhere at once, at the source and at the mouth, at the waterfall, at the ferry, at the rapids, in the sea, in the mountains, everywhere at once, and that there is only the present time for it, not the shadow of the past, not the shadow of the future.

— Hermann Hesse
