UM1362 Crossing Waves

Crossing Waves
Andy Scott
Edited by Lauren Scott

Cover imageCrossing Waves is inspired by the exploits of Roz Savage, who rowed solo across the Atlantic Ocean in 2005. Her determination, single-mindedness, creativeness, intuition and decisiveness are also the hallmarks of many musicians. The eight minute journey of this solo for harp breaks down into three main sections. The first reflects the apprehension and excitement at the start of a daunting journey, navigating sudden changes in weather, and at times relaxing into a regular rhythm. The second section represents stillness, calm, isolation and beauty mid-ocean. The final section displays a sudden release of energy and optimism, knowing that the final leg of the journey is underway an inner strength prevails.

Commissioned by Keziah Thomas with funds made available from the Ralph Vaughan Williams Trust, the Elias Fawcett Trust and individual donors.

World Premiere by Keziah Thomas 26th September 2010, The Forge, London and US Premiere: 16th October 2010, Weill Recital Hall, Carnegie Hall, New York.
