Voyage into the Blue


Grade 3.5
Performance Time: 8'45"
Publisher: Beriato Music <Hal Leonard Europe> (2014)


Voyage into the Blue was commissioned by the Windbands of Mizumaki Minami Junior High School, Koyo Junior High School and Fukuma Junior High School bands performed the work in a competition.
The pictorial music describes the voyage of an airplane. The introduction depicts the take-off, which is then embellished by the following section marked "energico." The second movement is an attractive setting of the flight itself. The slow section depicts a star-filled night sky. The close presents the landing at dawn: the flight is over.
A beautiful and exciting musical journey!
