Program Notes

Colorado: Land of mountains, rivers, canyons and dreams. It is a state where national monuments are the legacy of the most powerful and artistic forms of nature, past and present. The natural beauty of this region of the United States was the inspiration of Eternal Peaks. If one listens carefully, they may hear the panoramic beauty of a Colorado sunrise with the Rocky Mountains as the backdrop. The power of the dinosaurs, the menacing sheer angles of jagged rocks and the thunder of ancient drums combine to form the first movement entitled In Stone and Shadow. In contrast, Twilight seeks to capture the majestic yet delicate scenery at perhaps the most beautiful time of the day. The final movement, entitled Avalanche, brings together musical and visual imagery to the ost powerful of conclusions.
