Program Notes

The first movement Majesty’ is inspired by the artwork ‘The Harbor at Lorient’, painted in 1869 by the woman painter Berthe Morisot. The artwork beautifully captures the reflective nature of water and features a lone female figure observing the grandeur of the tall ships. The woman is the painter's sister Edma, who had recently married and moved away from the family home. The sisters were both avid painters and consequently were very close. They found their separation very difficult. Hence in this movement, I have attempted to capture not only the majesty of the ships, but the profound sense of loss as displayed by the sole woman sitting on the wall.
