The Piano and The Sea

Post by Brytner » Mon May 23, 2016 11:29 pm

Hi piano folks!

I am looking for pieces that, in some way, describe the sea and its sounds, movement and etc.

The first idea that comes to my mind is Liszt's Legend or Ravel's Mirrors, but I would like to have something more original.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Peter Sculthorpe "Sea Chant". A simple little piece but quite nice.

How about William Baines Midnight at Flamborough, also pieces by Godard on the subject of the sea.
