Music Inspired By the Beauty Of Nature

I've always been attracted to artists who celebrate nature. I remember reading the poems of Emerson and liking them immediately.

Same thing for music. Debussy wrote many pieces with "nature" titles and I love them. I also love Grofe's "Grand Canyon Suite."

There's something mysterious about it. Someone's interpretation of something. It's no mistake that the term "impressionism" was used to describe this kind of music.

Today it seems that impressionism has morphed into something called New Age music where we have composers like Rick Erlien doing solo piano works to themes like "Yosemite."

And of course... I like this too!
