Takemitsu’s soft spoken Toward the Sea was written originally for Greenpeace’s ‘Save the Whales’ campaign in 1981, performed here in its arrangement for alto flute and harp. Drawing upon Herman Melville, the work includes movements titled ‘Moby Dick’ and ‘Cape Cod’. The atmosphere of Elgar’s Piano Quintet, meanwhile, conjures a more foreboding atmosphere – ‘wonderful’ and ‘weird’, as Alice Elgar wrote, ‘evidently reminiscent of sinister trees…’
