Program Notes

Honoring the "forgotten war," Robert W. Smith offers this significant work in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Korean conflict. It's beautifully scored to balance the delicate oriental melodies with the dramatic and frenzied passages that mirror the conflict. Colorfully orchestrated, with percussion simulating the sound of a helicopter landing and parts for piano and alto flute (with cues for C flute), it is a thoroughly stunning tonal collage.

- Program Note by publisher

Dedicated in loving memory of my father, Staff Sergeant Benjamin F. Smith, U.S. Army (Retired), a heroic veteran of the Korean and Vietnam Conflicts.
