largely in the Western genre, Rock Springs Saga
begins with a brilliant fanfare, which recurs throughout
the piece. A whimsical flurry of sounds and dancelike
rhythms ensue before the music settles into a catchy
Western melody that is passed throughout the ensemble.
Just as it becomes familiar, the work bursts into
a faster tempo before calming into a mysterious slower
section. With the return of the opening tempo, a clever
mixture of sounds and rhythms leads back to the opening
theme as the piece ends in a whirlwind of sound. Sure
to leave a lasting impression!
