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 horn and later in the trumpets. The piece concludes with a recap of the upbeat spirited melody before arriving at an energetic conclusion.
