Movements-Titles: 

The Granite Mountain Dream
The Pink Forest Dream
The Good Old-Fashioned Toccata-Fugue Dream

The first two pieces in this set are tone poems in the truest sense of the term.
The music of The Granite Mountain Dream is solid, weighty, and hard. The
music is more than a vision of the mountain - it is the mountain. The music of
The Pink Forest Dream is as pink and forest-like as I could make it. This is
hypnotic music, music well suited for meditation. The Good Old-Fashioned
Toccata-Fugue Dream is a result of my recent study of J. S. Bach’s Well-Tempered
Clavier. Dedicated To Raphael Jimenez and The Michigan State University Philharmonic Orchestra
