Wynn-Anne Rossi's Along the Mississippi takes a trip down the Mississippi River in four distinct movements. The journey begins with 'Swiftly Flowing River,' a flowing movement that highlights where the river begins in Itasca State Park in Minnesota. Next, 'Stride Through St. Louie' depicts the jazz roots of St. Louis, Missouri with a stride left-hand accompaniment and swing rhythm. 'A Tribute to Mark Twain,' featuring a warm and expressive melody, honors the spirit of this American icon whose writing evoked the spirit of the Mississippi. The suite closes with full, rich chords and a nostalgic melody in 'View of the Delta Queen,' a majestic tribute to the steamboat that is now considered an historical landmark.
