Work Overview

This orchestral piece is inspired by the incredible landscape and beauty of the Blue Mountains in New South Wales. The opening moments from the strings describe the first light touching the far reaches of the mountains. It eventually evolves into a soaring melody when the valleys and mountains are fully drenched in the warmth of the sun, and the full beauty and of the scenery becomes a sight to behold.
