Dedicated to Minnesota's beautiful state park of the same name, Itasca is home to the headwaters of the mighty Mississippi River. Itasca Sunrise captures the break of dawn in the opening measures, and runs carefree thereafter. Melody Bober's wonderfully open piano sonorities and flowing LH ostinato accompaniment take the listener to a fondly remembered time and place. Simply beautiful!

    Love the beginning. Reminds me of the sun just coming up in the early morning. I love MOST of this piece. Love the beginning and the end but somewhere in the middle it's like not part of the piece, like the writer forgot what they were doing and sort...

    of flubbed in some lines but overall I enjoy playing it.

    Well I am from Itasca County, Minnesota and this is what I think everyone should think about when they picture Itasca County. The melody of this song just grasps the feeling of the Mississippi River. When I played this song at my recital, everyone was amazed on how well Melody...

    Bober captured the feeling of our home town.
