The Waterfall

Michael Robinson

About this work:
The opening music of The Waterfall was inspired by bird songs heard while walking in Beverly Hills. The second movement suggests the serenity of mist rising from a Hawaiian jungle pool underneath a waterfall. The concluding music sparkles like a school of tropical fish playing beneath the water of the pool. - Michael Robinson, December 1999, Lahaina © 1999 Michael Robinson All rights reserved
