In 2002 I wrote a choral work with flutes entitled Improvisation on a poem of Gwen Harwood and based on Gwen Harwood's poem, 'Sea Eagle'. In this work I have taken the raw material of the opening flute birdcalls to create a new work - again inspired by Gwen Harwood's poem and beautiful Bruny Island on which it is set.
The work seeks to introduce to young players a range of new sounds and techniques, within a context which is technically simple and musically approachable.
Instrumentation: Flute, oboe, bassoon, 2 clarinets in B flat, bass clarinet, alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone, 2 trumpets in B flat, horn, trombone, euphonium, tuba, timpani/cymbal, tam-tam, bass drum, wind chimes, glockenspiel.
Duration: 4 min.
Difficulty: Easy — very easy, with improvised and sound effect sections
Dedication note: For Rob Greenwood and the Combined Primary Schools Band Program, Southern Tasmania
First performance: 2 Dec 11. Combined Primary Schools Annual Concert 2011, Derwent Entertainment Centre, Glenorchy, Tasmania
