Noten für BlasorchesterSong of the sea Maidens
Song of the Sea Maidens is a programmatic work which tells the story of sailors who, while on a peaceful trading voyage, are caught in a violent storm that sweeps their ship off course. The sailors struggle against the storm, but eventually the waves become too powerful and the sallors are no longer able to maintain their position. They are pushed toward the dangerous cliffs of a remote island, but are unable to detect the impending disaster because of the storm. Sea maidens, living in the cliffs off the island, see the sailors in troubled water below and gebin to sing. The Sailors hear the song in the distance, softly at first, but growing louder. As the song surges above the roar of the waves, the sailors realize the danger they are in and quickly direct their ship around the island. The storm soon dissipantes and the sailors are once again left to the tranquilly of the sea.
