For chamber orchestra

First performance by the Southbank Sinfonia at the Levinsky Hall, Plymouth, February 4, 2023

Winner of the Musica Viva Composers Award 2023

Duration: 5 minutes

Composed in December 2022, BREAKWATER is a short overture for Symphony Orchestra, inspired by the journey of a river to the sea. Beginning softly, it gradually gains momentum, symbolising the river's journey to meet the ocean. The seascape of Plymouth guided my creative process, as I envisioned the Tamar River meeting Plymouth Sound and the English Channel.
