Program Notes

This composition is an episodic work that paints a musical portrait of a beautiful mountain landscape. Brass fanfares and soaring wind lines begin the piece, transitioning into an emotional section depicting the mountains at dusk. As the sun rises and sheds light on its peaks, the music becomes lyrical and rhythmically incisive, culminating in a heroic brass finale that depicts the full grandeur of the mountains.

- Program Note by publisher


Galante's Red Rock Mountain refers to a geologic feature in Ricketts Glen State Park in Luzerne, Pennsylvania. Streams with occasional waterfalls frame the park's trails. A hiker reaching the summit of Red Rock Mountains is rewarded with vistas that include the undulating ridge of the Allegheny Front and Pocono Formation.
