In the early morning of August 3rd 1492, Christopher Columbus went aboard the Santa Maria and gave the command to unfurl the sails. When the wind caught the sails, the three caravels were off and they had an uncharted ocean all to themselves. This is a great new programmatic work by Vince Gassi. All parts are interesting and exciting. A haunting middle section is surrounded by fast sections with driving energy from throughout the ensemble.
