InstrumentationSoprano Saxophone or Bb Clarinet/Piano
ComposerDeon Nielsen Price ASCAP
Composition Year1985
Publication Year1996 SMC
Composed while vacationing in Big Sur on Callifornia's rugged coast. "The work evoked an abstract yet bouncy mood in Sea Otters, capturing the humorous undertone of the lighthearted aquatic mammals; moved into more lyrical territory in Redwoods, which uncovered a sensitivity no usually related to the majestic tree; and concluded with another free-form movement in the aptly-titles Crags, with its jagged and abrupt phrasings." (The Muncie Star, Indiana, 3/23/1986)
