Program Notes

Robert Sheldon is a master at crafting works that relay gripping stories through music. This stirring composition pays tribute to the heroic efforts of rescuers that worked to save victims of a maritime disaster. You'll hear breezy themes indicating boats upon the waves, the building of the impending storm and the bold themes that represent the efforts of those that came to their rescue.
