A lone peacock floats over cream lilies, oleander, and a sea of alabaster violet. Orchestral pads of harps and horns drone. Pale blue fog hangs in the far woodlands.

Liner Notes

Charles Tomlin Griffes is an American composer of classical music. He comes from a period when music was flourishing in the U.S. A good deal of great early 20th century American music owes its language to French (and Russians working in Paris) music of the time - especially Ravel and Debussy. Though the term is much debated, this music is often described as impressionistic. Whatever it is called, it was the freshest sound of the new century. Large orchestras of odd percussion, soft sweeping strings, and harps transported the listener into dreamlike worlds where chromatic melodies hunted around the colorful corners of the tunes.¨

The French music being made by Frenchmen was undoubtedly French - artistic, charismatic, self aware, tongue-in-cheek - with a deep interest in mystery. Americans took this music - or this language of impressionistic tone painting - and applied to something distinct in America: tremendously vast landscapes. It is liquid music that moves and flows in grand harmonies describing the features of the American West, the open plains, and the towering peaks. Griffes most famous piece is a lush musical journey through the most iconic American landscape of all, the Grand Canyon.
