Surrounded by the sea, Ireland has historically relied on its ships as a means of transportation, trade, fishing, and exploration. Soon Hee Newbold uses various instruments to convey the rocking of the boats as well as the waves in the water. The celtic melody shines throughout over an occasional drone in the bass voices. A pizzicato section adds color and intensity to this vibrant work for strings. Strongly consider this one for your next concert!
