Program Notes

Intensely descriptive from the very first note, this work portrays a fateful encounter of hunters tracking the "last unicorn." The music is at times poignant and other times dramatic and exciting as the chase is depicted. Sweeping themes and rich scoring help to make this a memorable work for the symphonic stage.
