Dr. Peter Paul Koprowski


Into The Deep is a composition for symphony orchestra, approximately 11 minutes in duration..It explores diving beneath the ocean to explore an underwater civilization. The prospect of there being lost underwater civilizations is an intriguing idea that gave the inspiration for this piece. The piece is programmatic in a sense that it sets out-a linear progression of events in a wave or palindrome shape. The events represent the initial plunge, the encountering of aquatic life, the exploration of a lost civilization and then the return to the surface. The Vocalists serve to represent Sea Sirens, calling out when there is motion into and out of “the deep“.
