Wildflower is an original violin and piano composition for violin and piano.

A light, easy-listening classical piece for violin and piano, reminiscent of Eric Satie’s ‘Gymnopedie’.

Romantic in quality with a lilting piano part and melodic violin that delicately weaves a tale of fragile beauty that thrives under harsh conditions.
