Programme Note:

Owen Underhill

Bay of Dew, 1991

Commissioned by: Arcadian Winds


“The ‘Bay of Dew’ is in fact a crater on the moon, but in my mind, I envisaged a tiny body of water that had been entirely created by the gradual collection of precious drops of dew as they formulated in the early morning hours. I saw myself as having created the composition in a similar way, by waiting for and collecting melodies and harmonies. The work is in five short movements; the longest and most substantial being the third. The movements are all interrelated, often using the very same groups of diatonic pitches, or slight variations.”



Premiere Information:
August 1991, Tanglewood Festival; Arcadian Winds
