Dictionary Online defines Springtide as "...a rush of anything (emotion); gush; overflowing." The composer wrote this work as a catharsis for a deep loss he experienced, and chose to remember the positive and uplifting aspects instead of focusing on the depressing side of a painful loss. Beautiful brief motifs unfold in a lovely way in this uniquely expressive work, interspersed with poignant, introspective moments of silence.
A powerfully emotional contemporary string work!
