Fasten your seat belts and prepare for takeoff with this programmatic piece written to capture the exhilaration of powered flight. Unique percussion instruments and contemporary instrumental sonorities are used to build the excitement from the takeoff and flight through dramatic turbulence to the resolution of a successful landing. David Shaffer’s trademarks including driving rhythms, powerful harmonies, and solid melodies, are evident throughout this exciting piece. An excellent choice for contest or festival performances. Highly recommended.
