The four movements of Oregon: Pacific Wonderland portray some of the sights of this special state. Mount Hood is simple and majestic, beginning with triads and gradually expanding to fuller chords. It is melodic, with light eighth-note motion throughout. Portland, City of Roses is in D major and requires a gentle lilting touch. Appealing harmonies and varied articulations are found throughout. Specific pedal markings require careful attention, and fluctuating dynamics provide charm. Pendleton Round-Up Rodeo is a jaunty G major piece with a C major middle section. It has a quick, steady tempo, and mixed articulations between hands. Coastal Oregon depicts a foggy day on the coast by exploring impressionist sounds. An intense middle section and flowing lines contribute to this piece's uniqueness.

    I like all the state pieces I've tried so far, both the moods and descriptions of the areas. I am particularly fond of Portland, it was home for 9 years, and can understand the composer's interpretations. The last piece, Coastal Oregon, really captures what it's like there...
