The Coeur dAlene Suite 01 The Dawn

The Coeur dAlene High School String Ensemble under Jim Phillips, Music Director performs The Coeur dAlene Suite first movement, The Dawn of Time 3:57 This first piece is intended to convey the dawn of creation, starting with The Void, a fanfare round representing nothingness, leading into the Chaos of the formation of the Earths crust and the formation of terra firma with its constant upheavals of building up and destruction of the Earths surfaces. The Sun Coming over the mountains movement is a reference to the English translation of the Native-American word Idaho. The Missoula Flood refers to the ice-age melting leading to the sudden burst of waters flowing over this region, changing and re-creating the topography from Montana, through Northern Idaho to the coastal areas off of Seattle. Arranged for brass quintet, string orchestra, string quintet and full orchestra versions.
