Five brilliant composers on real or imagined journeys across America’s vast, variegated landscape. The California desert’s arid, rocky terrain of sand, howling wind, and hidden life and history. The energy, fragility, and spiritual symbolism of the Chicago River, with water transformed into a musical instrument. The impossible beauty of an immense Hawaiian volcano, ringed with exotic birds and plants, gauzy clouds at the crater’s rim, meteor-like rock, and hardened lava. The mystical allure of the Western flatlands, prairies, native wildlife, and spectacular nightly displays of the stars and heavens in a sky free of city lights. Plus the many sounds encountered on a freewheeling drive across the U.S.
