About Sierra Journal

The beauty and miracle of the mountains

The text for the six different movements are taken from Muir's writings between the years 1863 to 1875, and in setting Muir's words to music Anthony Plog captured his sense of wonder at the beauty and miracle of the mountains. Most of the music is bright and tonal with only a few exceptions, the most important being the final movement with its question of what role will man play in the mountains destiny.  The work begins and ends with an offstage trumpet, suggesting a voice in the wilderness, and the final solo ends with a question, not a resolution.
