Sea Fever

Sea Fever evokes the grandeur and exhilaration of a voyage on the high seas, drawing its mood and imagery from the famous poem of the same name by John Masefield.

The calm opening melody is introduced by the first violins with a quiet tremolo accompaniment, suggestive of the sea in the still mist before dawn. This image is soon dispelled with a spirited passage which takes us on our voyage, developing into a series of rollicking fiddle tunes shared between instruments. The first theme returns in more dramatic mood, building in intensity until reaching its exciting conclusion.

Although written as a stand-alone piece for advanced players, beginner to intermediate players can join in with the specially adapted parts that will fully involve them in the performance, making it a valuable work for School Concerts and Festivals.
