Notes from the composer
The eight minute journey of this solo for harp breaks down into three main sections. The first reflects the apprehension and excitement at the start of a daunting journey, navigating sudden changes in weather, and at times relaxing into a regular rhythm. The second section represents stillness, calm, isolation and beauty mid-ocean. The final section displays a sudden release of energy and optimism, knowing that the final leg of the journey is underway an inner strength prevails.
“…the highlight of the evening was clearly “Crossing Waves”, a totally original and engaging composition which should be performed on many future harp recitals – in this country and across the ocean.” – New York Concert Review
A complete performance of ‘Crossing Waves’ by Andy Scott written in 2010 for Keziah Thomas and performed live at Trinity Church, Wall Street on March 1st 2012.
