Depicting the beautiful landscapes of the San Andreas terrain in Palm Springs, CA, this programmatic work from Rossano Galante begins with a sparkling introduction mirroring the sun exploding out of the mountainous vistas. The soaring and robust main theme is first stated in the horns and then passed on to the trumpets. A calmer lyric section features a soloistic dialogue in the woodwinds. After a brief recapitulation of the opening theme, San Andreas Landscapes then culminates in a dynamic and riveting conclusion. Duration: 6:45.
