Tide Moon Earth Sun : Concerto for harp and strings

by Stuart Greenbaum (2018)

Work Overview

Tide Moon Earth Sun is written for Meriel Owen and Omega Ensemble, commissioned by Matthew Hindson for the Canberra Symphony Orchestra's Chamber Music Series. The title is derived from Ross Baglin's libretto for my second opera, The Parrot Factory:

The tide and the moon,
The moon and the earth
The earth and the sun
Are tied at their birth

This concerto for harp and strings is cast in a single movement of around 23 minutes duration and is a musical contemplation of this connectivity.
