Quick Overview

Inspired by the fire towers that are a feature of many National Parks and forests throughout the United States and the lookouts who man them, this powerful piece begins with a majestic theme in C minor that will dominate its course. A contrasting Allegro idea featuring repeated notes, a striking percussion "break" and a subtle use of syncopated rhythms help propel this notable selection to an exciting conclusion.
