Program Notes

This beautiful work was inspired by the opening of Aaron Copland's Appalachian Spring. The title suggests two possible meanings: a depiction of someone walking on a rough trail through the woods of Ontario enjoying the sights, sounds, and smells of the peaceful forest; or a reference to a specific path in the southern United States, perhaps the Wilderness Trail used by settlers in the late 1700s. The composition includes lyrical melodic opportunities for several instruments, attractive harmonic material, effective contrasts of dynamics, delicate opening and closing passages, and several solo indications.
