  • Highly recommended

From the Publisher

The piece opens very simply and softly with sustained melodic entrances that create peaceful sounding chords that represent the lake waters which form the river's humble beginnings. As the piece develops from these opening intervals, it continues to grow and build with melodic and rhythmic complexity. This building of intensity represents how the waters of the Mississippi River grow from humble beginnings at Lake Itasca in the mighty river that has shaped so much of the history of the country.
