See the legendary American Southwest as never before in this sweeping journey across Arizona, Colorado and Utah. Southwest Symphony is a dazzling mosaic of stunning images artfully synchronized to a soundtrack of great classical composers.
Southwest Symphony showcases the region's scenic grandeur, outdoor lifestyles and fascinating wildlife. Fog-shrouded forests and brilliant wildflowers, gentle streams and whitewater rapids, ghostly canyons and serene valleys, arid deserts and snow-capped mountains are enhanced by the music of Copland, Dvorák, Bartók, Sibelius, Debussy, de Falla, Handel and Glazunov. Through the magic of editing, elk, bighorn sheep, antelope, bobcats, javelina, prairie dogs, and tortoises appear in scenes choreographed perfectly to the music. Images of wild mustangs racing across sweeping mesas contrast with the elegant ballet of tiny hummingbirds and delicate butterflies. A modern locomotive powers through a snowbank, offering dramatic counterpoint to ancient Indian ruins and petroglyphs. Scenes of working cowboys, river rafters, hang gliders and rodeo riders provide eloquent testimony to man's presence in this ruggedly beautiful land. If one picture is worth a thousand words, this program speaks volumes about the spirit of the Southwest without a single word of narration.
