The closing movement from the Sea to Sky Suite is "Beyond Whistler." After whisking down this highest and most treacherous of slopes, the listener stops to view what lies beyond. This movement is finalized with a long, slow build to the climax, again using the motif that is present throughout the entire suite. It is to be performed with a great sense of wonder and excitement, with a gradual build to the end. A grand conclusion to this dynamic suite. Also consider programming the first three movements: "March: The Lion's Gate" (26772), "Shannon Falls" (26773) and "Stawamus Chief" (29630). (7:10).
