By John Peterson

Regular price $70.00 Sale

Mandolin Orchestra - (mandolin I, mandolin II, mandola, acoustic guitar, bass guitar (or double bass)

The use compound meter (12/8) and additive meter (13/8) throughout the piece is typical of the composer's compositional style and, in this work, creates a gentle rhythmic lilt that represents the motion of the waves on the harbour; while the sometimes wistful melodies attempt to evoke the beauty of both the natural (the water, the Botanic Gardens) and the urban (the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Opera House) elements that combine to make this city such a memorable place.
This work was commissioned for the International Mandolin Festival Sydney 2008.
