The composer, Bruce Tippette, wrote this piece for his son. "Wondrous Flight" alternates between insistent syncopated rhythms and flowing melodic passages. As the piece progresses, an increase in tempo drives the melodies through each section of the orchestra toward a grandiose, climactic moment.
The piece elevates itself throughout, creating the feeling of climbing ever higher into the sky, finally ending in a fiery burst of energy as the familiar melodies reprise one final time to deliver a big finish.
