A Wild Sea

This piece was written in response to Naviarhaiku333 – A wild sea-

     A wild sea-
     In the distance over Sado
     The Milky Way.

This haiku is by Matsuo Bashō. During the journey that would result in his masterpiece, The Narrow Road to the Deep North, Basho stopped at Izumo Point on the Japan Sea and gazed out to Sado Island which, at that time, was infamous as a place of exile.

A Wild Sea was written for Alto Flute, Bass Clarinet, trombone, Bass Trombone, Gong, Cymbals, Violin, Viola, Cello and String Bass.
