A sunny, sensuous work focusing on the poignant and lyrical aspects of the flute, this three-movement concerto ultimately achieves traditional virtuosity in the closing passages. Initiated on Fatherís Day, this piece possessed the composerís soul in a whirlwind of activity that reached completion at the exact moment of his fatherís death five months later. The title was inspired by an incident where the composer narrowly escaped what likely would have been a fatal auto accident without some sort of other-worldly intervention.
