This dramatic composition, crafted into four continous movements, is a musical portrait that reflects nearly 300 years of Ohio history. Shawnee Village, 1730: represented by a haunting recorder solo (or flutes) accompanied by clarinets and a variety of percussion sounds. 1812 Era: Powerful drums introduce The Battle of Thames where Chief Tecumseh lost his life. Portsmouth, 1903: A Copland-like introduction is followed by a lively rendition of original folk music, bringing to life the city of Portsmouth, Ohio at the turn of the 20th century. The Beauty of the River (For All Time): A beautiful and expressive theme brings this work to a glorious and highly impressive finish. SUPERB!
