The Whirling Way

The Whirling Dervish is a form of physically active meditation which originated among certain Sufi groups, and which is still practiced by the Sufi Dervishes of the Mevlevi order and others. The Whirling Way is an interpretation where the music’s repetitive nature allows for the inclusion of elements that do not exist within the score of the piece, but within the mind of the listener.

The Whirling Way was written for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, Gong, Temple Blocks, Choir, Violin, Viola, Cello and String Bass.

The score is available at
