The power and intensity of our ever-changing marine environment is portrayed in this descriptive work for young players. Incorporating a simple melodic motif along with syncopated rhythmic energy, Michael Oare effectively depicts the power of nature's most violent storms. Opening with a calm, yet foreboding introduction, the work quickly transforms as the storm draws near. Thundering bass drum rolls, driving rhythmic and melodic ostinatos, and dynamic and textural contrasts propel the piece towards a bold and exciting conclusion.
