Program Notes

The awe and wonder of this ancient Aztec monument are reflected in the regal fanfare-like opening statement. This amazing structure and the events that surrounded it inspired the contemporary musical vignettes of this extraordinary work. This is epic music for an epic piece of history.

- Program Note from publisher

The Pyramid of the Sun is a massive structure located in central Mexico in the pre-Columbian city of Teotihuacan. The city was named by the Aztecs as "the place where gods were born." One of the largest of its kind in the world, construction of the pyramid began around 100 A.D., and when finished measured 738 feet across and 246 feet high. Although some of the pyramid's detail has been lost over the years, most of the actual structure remains intact to this day.
