narrow valleys, crooked hills

Program Notes:

“Narrow Valleys, Crooked Hills” was inspired by the landscape of southwestern Wisconsin; driving along the roads that wind through the snowy, rugged hills; following the rivers and streams that snake through the valleys, eventually leading to the wide open expanses of the Mississippi River.
