Sheet Music: Score
River views : for tenor trombone and string orchestra / Don Kay.
by Don Kay (1995)
I am constantly fascinated by the ever-changing colours and
surface textures of the Derwent River viewed from my Taroona
home. The invitation to compose a work for Conservatorium
resources provided the opportunity to explore some related ideas.
The work is scored for tenor trombone and string orchestra. The
following images acted as the starting point for each of the five
A patch of gleaming, silver sunlight on the leaden
surface of the river in winter.
The brilliant sparkling effect of bright sunlight.
The light of the full moon suffusing the river on
a very still night.
Incessant turbulance as far as the eye can see.
Very smooth, silk-like, pale blue surface in summer.
