Programme Note
Virgil Thomson Sea Piece with Birds (1952)
In this work, Thomson writes that he attempts “to portray the undertow of the sea, the surface tension of waves, and the flight of birds. The musical textures are of double and triple chromatic harmonies and the form is free, with no thematic repetition.”
