Sounds of Pennsylvania creates a soundscape of Pennsylvania's famous places. Mt. Washington, the former site of coal mines and rock quarries in Pittsburgh, is pictured in "Panorama from Mt. Washington." Here, sounds of the steel industry mingle with a lyrical melody. The quiet simplicity and beauty of the Pennsylvania Dutch and Mennonite communities are heard through the use of hymn tunes in the second movement, "Pennsylvania Dutch Country." The third movement, "Sounds of Liberty," travels to Philadelphia, a city that played an important role in American history. Sounds of the Liberty Bell can be heard in this stately and stirring piece.

Show Me Missouri! Suite
Victor Labenske
Alfred Publications, 27030
$4.50

Sample page:

Show Me Missouri! takes a musical tour of Missouri, the "Show Me State." The four movements feature famous landmarks, beginning with the Gateway Arch, one of the most prominent features of the St. Louis skyline (The Gateway Waltz). Life on the Mississippi captures the spirit of the river and that of celebrated author, Mark Twain. Plaza Jazz pays tribute to Kansas City's fine jazz tradition and the Country Club Plaza. And no trip to Missouri would be complete without a visit to Sedalia, birthplace of Scott Joplin and home of the Katy Depot, a major stop along the Katy Trail. (Katy Depot Rag)

Wyoming Landscape
Victor Labenske
Alfred Publications, 00-38798
$4.50

Sample page:

Wyoming Landscapes captures the spirit and nuance of the Wyoming frontier. Beginning with a visit to Grand Teton National Park, "Horses and Hidden Falls" recreates the sound of the Old West through graceful, galloping rhythmic and melodic patterns. "Old Faithful" depicts the famous geyser in Yellowstone National Park with splashy sixteenth-note passages. And the glory days of the frontier are brought to life in "Frontier Days in Cheyenne." This bright movement celebrates the city of Cheyenne and its long, storied history with a down-home feel and foot-tapping appeal, bringing the suite to an exciting close.

20060109 look inside Wonderful Washington Composed by Victor Labenske. For Piano. Graded Standard Repertoire; Piano Suite; Piano Supplemental; Sheet; Solo. Recital Suite Series. Form: Suite. Recital. Intermediate. 12 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.44333).
Wonderful Washington pays tribute to this Pacific Northwest state in three engaging movements. "Spokane Falls" depicts the waterfalls in Riverfront Park through flowing, cross-hand motives, with repeating patterns and syncopated rhythms. "Seattle Summits" portrays the height of Mount Rainier and the Space Needle by using a broad range of the keyboard. A mysterious sound is achieved through dissonant, unexpected chords, abundant accidentals, and key changes. A technical challenge for students is stretching the hand for large intervals. "Walla Walla Sweets" displays a carnival sound through the use of accidentals, syncopation, and mixed articulations. One of the challenges is rapid hand-position changes.
