Songs of the Open Road: Five Inspirations from Walt Whitman (Flute Alone)
Songs of the Open Road: Five Inspirations from Walt Whitman (Flute Alone) by Daniel Dorff, Published by Theodore Presser Company.
Whitman’s epic “Song of the Open Road” is an inspiring metaphor encouraging us to find and explore our own paths, free of anchors or artificial boundaries. Dorff uses 5 brief passages from the poem as movement titles, setting the stage for a suite of sometimes-edgy soliloquies in which the music (and the flutist) explores these open roads.
