The legend of Amelia Earhart continues to capture the imaginations of aviators and historians worldwide. Earhart, a pioneer in aviation and in women’s rights, began her final journey in the United States and crossed multiple continents. Robert W. Smith has drawn upon Earhart’s final flight to create this unique musical composition. Following the opening “takeoff,” the composer was inspired by the indigenous sounds of the various continents in Earhart’s flight path. From a unique fugue inspired by the music of Central and South America to a lyrical statement from the Dark Continent, the listener is transported on a musical journey that will capture the imagination. Following a dark and powerful percussion statement with Asian overtones, the journey ends not in tragedy but in celebration as the original flight theme returns. An excellent choice for any concert setting!
