"Flight" - violin, viola, cello, double bass

Michaela Gyure (Urbandale High School - Urbandale, IA - Class of 2015)

Program Notes

                Flight is a rather abstract programmatic work, with each of the three movements representing a step in the process of achieving flight.  The first movement, “An Idea” is representative of the fragmented concept that man could fly.  The seemingly sporadic notes symbolize the individual ideas and thoughts of the pioneers of flight, and are actually the basis for the musical theme of the second movement.  The violin part contains the theme itself in a severely deconstructed form, and the double bass unifies the ideas through the use of the same chord progression in the first and second movements.

                 “Attempts,” the second movement, is representative of the many trials it took to achieve successful flight.  The same chord progression is utilized throughout the entire movement, representing the common goal of each attempt at flight, while the melody is changed to symbolize the alterations made to actual method of each attempt.

                The third movement, “Success” is symbolic of the achievement of flight.  The initial measures have a certain air of apprehension that this final trial would be successful, but the music then blossoms into a new theme representative of reaching the goal.  The rising and falling of the music is symbolic of the physical rising and falling experienced while flying.  The conclusion of the piece with the pizzicato section is representative of flying away and disappearing into the horizon, as well as the birth of new ideas inspired by this flight.
