Wilson, Zackery: Swallow Falls 

 

 

Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Swallow Falls State Park is located nine miles north of Oakland, Maryland and contains some of the state’s most breathtaking scenery. The Youghiogheny River flows along the park’s borders, passing through shaded rocky gorges and creating rippling rapids. Upstream, the water remains calm and tranquil. But as it moves downstream, the river becomes increasingly more turbulent and rapid, finally culminating with Muddy Creek Falls, a crashing 53-foot waterfall-- a spectacular sight. Such imagery is projected in the music of “Swallow Falls”: The rhythmic motion of the piece becomes progressively more active and intense, continually accelerating to a grand climax (i.e. “a towering waterfall”).
