Written largely in the Western genre, Rock Springs Saga begins with a brilliant fanfare, which recurs throughout the piece. A whimsical flurry of sounds and dancelike rhythms ensue before the music settles into a catchy Western melody that is passed throughout the ensemble. Just as it becomes familiar, the work bursts into a faster tempo before calming into a mysterious slower section. With the return of the opening tempo, a clever mixture of sounds and rhythms leads back to the opening theme as the piece ends in a whirlwind of sound. Sure to leave a lasting impression!
