The Coeur dAlene Suite 08 The Logger

The Coeur dAlene High School String Ensemble performs The Coeur dAlene Suite 08 The Logger 3:47 This section represents a time spent with the composers dad experiencing the life of a logger which starts by Waking Up Before Dawn, about 3:30 a.m., having breakfast and heading out to the woods for a day of Chopping Trees, in a steady, monotonous rhythm. The music in this movement represents slumber and confusion upon waking up tired so early. Occasionally, in the summertime there were logging festival days where loggers would compete in Feats of Strength including contests to see which person could chop down a tree faster, or saw up a tree trunk the quickest, maybe two loggers would jump on a log in a pond and try to tip the other logger into the water first as the log rolled. Loggers, as did many of the hard-working members of North Idahos earlier society tended to get worn out by Playing Too Hard. The composers fathers courtship of his mother is represented in the waltz tune in the movement titled Logger In love. Arranged for brass quintet, string orchestra, string quintet and full orchestra versions.
