Seeing the Sea Beyond the Trees by Catherine Wilson evokes peace and nostalgia with a meditative feel.
The ostinato style patterns and flowing pianistic left hand help convey the overall landscape while the impressionistic right hand flurries, tenuto chords and part-playing help to create images of the sea and trees.
