Performed live by Grainger Wind Symphony

White horses (for symphonic wind ensemble) was commissioned by Reed Music in 2008 with financial assistance from the Australia Council. While writing the music, I was inspired by thoughts of a rugged, rough-and-tumble seascape, with fresh, salt-laden winds transforming waves into myriad white horses.

The music begins and ends with plenty of triplets which provide an energetic mood and strong, forward impetus. The middle section of the work draws further on water imagery with the sounds of bubbling water scored in and around the instrumental music. - MO
