by the same group that premiered Moscow, 1941,
this incredible new work chronicles the World War
II miracle involving the only Americans to ever escape
from a sunken submarine. Beginning with dark chords
and a military field drum, the music evokes thoughts
of honor and integrity. As events unfold, tempo becomes
much faster and dissonant lines emerge. Excerpts from
America occur in various forms, first in adrenaline-packed
moments, then in a brief moment of solitude and calm.
The final burst of energy portrays the daring escape.
An incredible portrayal of courage, leadership, sacrifice,
and survival against all odds!
