Exhilaration and daring-this work describes mankind's constant fascination with some of the most powerful forces in nature. As the work opens, the beauty of the water and its sound calms the listener. Soon, however, we plunge into the water and test ourselves against the "raging rapids." Highly rhythmic and compelling, this work is destined to thrill all who perform it. Can your orchestra "tame the untamable"?
