Co-produced by Rick Sowash and Gasparo Records to raise
funds for the maintenance of the celebrated Appalachian Trail,
this CD features music for each of the regions through which
the trail passes. Included are Rick Sowash's Fantasia on
"Shenandoah" for string quartet, recorded by the Shelburne
Quartet and selections by Vally Weigl, William Mayer, Edward
MacDowell and William Stevens.
"[Sowash's style is] in the American classic tradition
of Ives, Piston, Copland and Barber, with a strong devotion
to pastoral beauty." -- Barbara Harbach, Herman
Trotter, "The Buffalo News," Buffalo, NY
