Program Notes

The grand and sweeping scope of the video game Civilization VI is captured beautifully by this anthemic composition. This version effectively retains the drama and impact of the original and can be performed by bands of all sizes and instrumentations.

- Program Note by publisher


Sid Meier's Civilization VI is a turn-based strategy 4X video game developed by Firaxis Games. The latest entry into the Civilization series, it was released in October 2016.

Similar to previous installments, the goal for the player is to develop a civilization from an early settlement through many millennia to become a world power and achieve one of several victory conditions, such as through military domination, technological superiority, or cultural influence, over the other human and computer-controlled opponents. Players do this by exploring the world, founding new cities, building city improvements, deploying military troops to attack and defend from others, researching new technologies and cultural civics, and engaging in trade and negotiations with other world leaders.

Composer Christopher Tin, who wrote Baba Yetu, the Grammy-winning theme song for Civilization IV, returned to write Civilization VI's main theme, Sogno di Volare (The Dream of Flight). The theme was written to capture the spirit of exploration not only in "seeking new lands, but also the mental exploration of expanding the frontiers of science and philosophy".
