Set in first position and using only notes of the D and G scales, this catchy tune gallops forward with a steady eighth-note ostinato. A quiet interlude evokes scenes of campfires and slow-moving cattle drives before the race begins again. Every section gets melodic material in this spirited tribute to the Wild West.

Two Lyric Pieces is an arrangement of two Edvard Grieg lyric piano pieces. The two contrasting movements, In My Native Country, a somber, reverential homage to his native Norway, and the energetic Spring Dance promote ensemble listening with the ease of first position melodies. The movements are a good introduction to Grieg's folk-inspired mastery.

Travel back to a time of golden sunsets over open country with this nostalgic medley of three songs from the American West. This is not the soundtrack of the hoedown or the training of the wild horse. Rather it is a pensive look at homespun melodies that the cowboy might whistle at the end of the day. Perfectly suited for string ensembles, and accessible across all sections. Includes: Red River Valley; Whoopee Ti-Yi-Yo and Home on the Range.
