Program Notes

This composition is based on the Greek myth of the voyage of the ship Argo through the Symplegades

The Symplegades were a group of rocks which opened and closed so that every ship caught in between was crushed. The seer Phineas told the Argonauts to let a pigeon fly between the rocks. If the pigeon flew through unharmed, the ship would also be able to pass safely. When the Argonauts reached the rocks, they followed Phineas' instructions. As the pigeon flew through the Symplegades, the rocks closed, catching her tailfeathers. Having seen this, the Argonauts followed and, as the rocks closed, only the helm of the Argo was caught.
