Earthscape is a lyrical piece inspired by the view of our planet from space. In the silent, black vacuum of space exists this bright blue planet, slowly rotating, giving astronauts a serene and breathaking view of the only source of life in our solar system. The mountains, polar ice caps, rain forests and oceans paint a beautiful picture for those lucky enough to see it from afar.
This work features the mixed woodwind ensemble in a peaceful mood and offers the opportunity for some soloistic playing by several players.
