Sea Eagle for Solo Horn by Peter Maxwell Davies
SEA EAGLE takes its name from a rare and magnificent bird, and the music, unaccompanied and austere, is meant to evoke something of its high loneliness. There are three movements of great virtuosity, with ever-transforming melodic contours underpinned by unvarying motifs. The work was first performed by Richard Watkins at the Dartington Summer School of Music in 1992.
