Program Notes:

Water Mirrors II was created from the material in the second movement of Water Mirrors, a suite for string orchestra, originally commissioned in 2015 by Symphony Number One (Baltimore). The work takes inspiration from a set of poems by Nicholas Powell. This piece is organised into three distinctly contrasting sections, based on the second and third stanzas of Powell’s poem, "At Sea".

Water Mirrors II was arranged for Maryanne Piper and Gabriella Smart.
