Inspired by the composer George Phillipp Telemann
, this piece takes some of the materials from my favorite work by this composer: the "Hamburger Ebb' und Flut", also known as the "Water Music", which consists of dance suites that are each based on figures from Greek Mythology. The melancholic melodic lines of the 4th movement ("Der Verliebte Neptune") and the beautiful, longing underlying harmonic progressions and seamlessly flowing and light melodic lines of the Overture are used as the main foundations in my work. Throughout the work, materials from "Hamburger Ebb' und Flut" subtly come to surface as ripples of sound change form.
