Program Notes

Windjammers were the last of the great sailing tall ships, and this piece captures the majesty and excitement of these amazing vessels. The voyage begins announced by three solo trumpets surrounding the audience and bouncing musical phrases off one another. The sails are raised, the ship is underway and the audience is taken on a colorful and thrilling musical voyage. This is effectively and skillfully scored programmatic music at its finest.
