Songs of the Open Road
Five Inspirations from Walt Whitman
for Solo Flute
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. A live performance by Amy Porter is available at https://youtu.be/n0jIcZOhBe4
