Product details

This work is easily playable by a good youth orchestra. It explores the feelings of going to the beach - the drive, the anticipation of a good surf, anticipating a great day out, and also the feelings of being in the surf - a good ride on your board, the turbulence of diving under the sets, and also just lying on the sand. The Coda suggests a change in conditions - like a southerly rolling in or the north east chop. It's language is tonal, and the orchestration is classic Rimsky Korsakov and Respighi, with a hint of Michael Torke, so it comes together in rehearsal pretty quickly.
