This accessible piano quintet in a romantic style lasts approximately 32 minutes and can be played by players of grade 8 standard across all parts. Reflections depicts the journey of a river from its source in the hills to the ocean. The four movements are:
1) Moderato - Allegro non troppo. Starting from its source in the hills, the river grows in size as it flows through the English countryside.
2) Nocturne: Andante. A nocturne with a stormy middle section.
3) Scherzo. A lively scherzo with trills representing birdsong and a trio that depicts a waterfall.
4) Allegro Moderato - Moderato. The climax is reached and the river disappears into the ocean.
A recording of Reflections is on the CD Philip Seaton - Chamber Works (release date 19 Sept 2018).
