Story behind the song

No real story per se for this work. Love has many nuances and Bouquet represents only one of those nuances in a sensuous and romanticway. Gentleness, comfort, quiet, melodic are a few of the words used to describe this piece. It was originally written as a solo piece for guitar and later modified by arranging the music adding first and second violins and the cello to carry the bass and to add fulness to the song. A lot of my music utilizes a flowing melody line rather than a more abrupt or rigid melody. In this way romance is in the air as is the scent of flowers.
