Program Notes

Journey to the land of castles in the highlands with this stunningly beautiful composition. The opening features a silvery baritone solo on the traditional Irish folk song I Know Where I'm Going, and the piece goes on to paint a scene as magnificent to hear as it was for the composer to see. The energetic highland celebration is built upon the pulsing rhythms that Robert Smith is known for, and creates the vision of Gaelic dancers whirling in a display of exuberant joy.
