Sweeping expansive music that expresses the breadth of land- and seascapes, with a sense of coming together to where these elements touch each other—land meeting water, mountain stretching to heavens above, and distant horizons where oceans and skies blend. We’ll journey to islands with fiery volcanoes and molten earth, and in the quiet of the night sit on soft grass in front of a bonfire with sparks flying, and listen to their music. This image brings together many genres: symphonies and folksongs from the hills of Appalachia, ballads of conquering heroes and lost souls. Music of Liszt, Strauss, and Moeran, to the forgotten composers we call Traditional and Anonymous.
