Program note
coastal winds is based around a portion of an old piano piece of mine – the recurring big chords were originally a failed four-part chorale, which featured frowned-upon parallel fifths and a cheeky bassline that is simply a major scale. In this piece, the chorale is interrupted and restarts a number of times before revealing the whole phrase. The interruptions are all based on snippets of the chorale as well. Although there is no “story” to this piece, portions of it reminded me of sea shanties and other “sailing the high seas” music.
