Description
“On 23 July 2015, NASA announced the discovery of an earth-like planet orbiting in the inhabitable zone of a star similar to our sun. The planet, which is 1400 light years distant from the earth, was discovered by the space telescope Kepler.” … in a not too distant future, the spacecraft Kepler 452b, embarks on an interstellar journey to reach a new goal for humanity … The imaginary journey, portrayed in music by the author, begins with a fanfare that describes, in a solemn tone, the celebration of a major event: the ship’s takeoff. This section is followed by a smoother part, where the peaceful theme of the clarinets, then reprised by the whole ensemble, accompanies the astronauts during their long space journey. A section with bright tones introduces a cheerful yet restless allegro, which conveys the emotion of the sighting of the planet and the approach to it. Finally, the reprise of the journey theme, enriched by the ornamentations of the woodwinds, emphasizes the crew’s emotion in reaching the goal. In the last measures of the composition, after a brief mention of the fanfare theme (a distant memory of the earth), the echo of the allegro returns to show the listener the reality that this great achievement is an open book that still contains many unknowns.
