|Sea Symphony : University of Western Australia Choral Society
Sea Symphony, composed by Ralph Vaughan Williams and inspired by Walt Whitmanís magnificent poetry, depicts the majesty and mystery of the sea.
Composed between 1903 and 1909, it was the composerís first and longest
choral work. Sea Symphony superbly evokes the power of the sea and celebrates the brave explorers who navigate its waters, whilst also using the sea as a metaphor for a voyage into eternity.
Hear this ambitious and bold masterpiece brought to life by a choir of over 100 singers, including two outstanding Australian soloists, Katja Webb and Andrew Foote, with a full orchestra conducted by Christopher van Tuinen.
