Sailing Boats

By Miriam Hyde

Regular price $40.00 Sale

Flute, oboe, clarinet and piano, c.1'40
Written in 1969 for the students of Trinity Grammar School, Melbourne.
It is associated, in the composer's mind, with Van Gogh's pencil drawing of Fishing Boats. The flowing semiquaver movement in the piano suggests the running, restless sea, while the wind instruments supply a lilting background, as the many little craft tilt their sails and their masts with the bobbing of the waves. The chief melodic material is heard at first on the flute, but is shared later by the oboe and clarinet.
