Trail of Dreams, Robert W. Smith Concert Band Chart
Robert W. Smith conveys the grandeur and excitement of the American experience with marvellous compositional skill in this outstanding composition! Every note and dynamic variation is meaningful as the listener participates in America's westward expansion on a trip along the Union Pacific Railroad. The themes "On The Trail" and "All The Pretty Little Horses" recall a lazy trail ride by horseback and offer a wonderful contrast to the mechanical, relentless sounds of the railroad cars clicking down the tracks. There are many fine solo moments and the programmatic nature of the work makes this a unique musical journey for your students. Highly recommended!
