Sheet Music: Score
Sea-change : for piano / Andrew Schultz.
by Andrew Schultz (1987)
It is hard to say the sea excites the imagination, without sounding clichéd. Yet its constant regeneration, its power and its myriad shapes, impressions and dramatic changes of colour are for me, overwhelming. The work has a simple shape of two peaks and a calm, but not settled, end. The piece is constructed from an initial impetus consisting of three slowly rotating harmonic sequences of different duration - one in the left hand and one in the right hand in bell-like chords and the other moving through the piano's mid-range as arpeggios; these sequences revolve around each other eventually enmeshing and evolving at key points in the work. Sea-Change was commissioned by Bernard Lanskey in 1987 with financial assistance from the Music Board of the Australia Council.
