The title of this work comes from the wave like motion of the themes. It reflects the composer's love of the water and particularly the Australian beaches. The first movement is a Theme and Variations on an Adagio theme beginning in D minor tonality and ending in E Dorian tonality.
The second movement is more animated, making use of syncopated ostinati figures, superimposed with floating melodies to unify the work, the second movement finishes with a varied repeat of the E Dorian section from the first movement.
This piece was premiered in Australia in 1990 by the Ars Nova Orchestra in the Blue Mountains and more recently has received international performances by the Da Chiesa orchestra in Switzerland.
