Product Details


Deriving its subtitle from a Civil War poem by Walt Whitman, this original tone poem by Richard Meyer is full of emotion and energy. The work is divided into four sections entitled "Home," "Recruitment," "Departure," and "Into Battle." It begins with a recurring theme introduced by solo trumpet that represents a young man. This segues into the next theme, which features George Roots's stirring "Battle Cry of Freedom." Flutes and drums are widely used to convey a strong feeling of patriotism. The Road Unknown is a thoughtful, well-written work that is sure to stand out at your next concert!
