Beschreibung

Composed in the summer of 1989, Trail of Tears was composed to commemorate the 150th anniversary of that tragic event, despite a U.S. Supreme Court decision which favored the Five Civilized Tribes, President Andrew Jackson ordered federal troops to round up members of these tribes (Cherokees, Choctaws, Chickasaws, Creeks and Seminoles) and forcibly move them to what was then known as "Indian Territory", present-day Oklahoma. On this tragic journey, which was conducted during the winter months of 1839-40, over 4,000 Native Americans perished from starvation, exhaustion and exposure to the elements.

The work opens with timpani and solo flute, emoting a rather pastoral mood to portray the peaceful nature of these people. The faster section is meant to describe the strife between the tribes and the encroaching settlers, building to a climax when federal troops brough in by the U.S.Cavalry to finally defeat the tribes. The last scene of the work describes a agony of the journey. It includes the recitation by the band members of a mournful Cherokee poem: Let us mourn those who have died Let us mourn those who are dying Let us mourn those who must endure The final portion of Trail of Tears ultimately envolves into a triumphal statement, intended to portray the ultimate victory of these Native Americans, who, in spite of this tragic event, have survived and prospered, remaining strong and proud peoples to this day.
