Ferde Grofe’: "Five Pictures of the Grand Canyon"

Ferde Grofe’: "Five Pictures of the Grand Canyon"

Ferde Grofe’s Grand Canyon Suite was initially titled "Five Pictures of the Grand Canyon".

The work is in five movements, each describing a scene that’s typical of the Grand Canyon.  Enjoy the music that starts at “Sunrise”, then takes us through the “Painted Desert”, “On the Trail”, right through to “Sunset” and a “Cloudburst”.  Join Russell Gant as the Grand Canyon Suite is our nightly masterwork on Classical WSMR.
