Info

Pavel Stanék puts an important historical happening into notes. The work is dedicated to the "Filarmonica Sestrese" for the occasion of the "Kolumbusfeiern" in 1992.

The composition opens with a prayer prior to departure. A signal calls everybody to the harbor where the final preparations for the great voyage are made. Finally the ships put to sea - the 6/8 barcarole pitches and tosses them, sometimes in a forceful way, sometimes very gently only. Then the ships are becalmed which creates an atmosphere full of tension and everybody waits for the storm to break. After the storm it is "Land ahoy!" and the sailors cheer with joy. Again the prayer motif is heard, this time, howerever, as a prayer of thanksgiving for the safe arrival. The hymn in the finale celebrates the discovery of the New World.

The composer asks to be lenient to him for not having remained faithful to the sequence of historic events, as the expedition encountered the great storm only on its return voyage.
