This work tells the story of the famous sailor and explorer - Christopher Columbus. His voyage to discover a trade route with China while traveling West led to the discovering of The New World - the Americas. It is set in four contrasting sections - At the Dock, Setting Sail, A Lonely Life at Sea and To New Discoveries - each with its own character and color. The stately fanfare opening moves into a spirited section with a great melody and syncopated support rhythms. A Lonely Life at Sea is reflective with melody in the middle voices. The piece concludes with a recap of the upbeat spirited melody before arriving at an energetic conclusion.
