"Waves is an evocative and dramatic work for Orchestra thathighlights many of the colors of the ensemble. The tune, first featured in theViola solo and then developed further along, was written in the sand atJacksonville Beach by the composer, Daniel Farrell. Upon writing the theme, hehastily wrote that evening an early sketch of what would become Waves.

Waves isinspired musically by the minimalist movement of the 20th century. In keepingwith Daniel Farrell’s signature “Neo-Romantic” style however, it is infusedwith the lush melodies he is known for creating. The piece features the use ofan Ocean Drum, a unique percussion instrument meant to directly portray themotion of the waves. The overall structure of the work also parallels themotion of waves on a beach: gradually becoming larger and building upon itselfuntil it reaches a heightened climax in which the wave crashes on the shore. Itthen recedes (as illustrated in the Flute and Viola solos) into nothingnessagain.

This isperfect for youth orchestras and developing high-school and early collegeensembles."
