Program Notes

The wonder of nature is demonstrated through five musical vignettes. The piece opens with sounds that conjure the image of incredible ice formations that build to grandiose proportions. As the work develops, listeners hear the destruction of the massive ice structure as it crashes into the sea, the glacier's survival and the beginning of the cycle once again. A stunning look at a nature's might.
