Between The Bridges at Sunset

Joseph Bertolozzi

About this work:
This arrangement of the sixth movement of my orchestral work Suite Poughkeepsie (written for that city’s bicentennial), is a bright, sunny piece, and is fun to play. As well as being visible from the waterfront, the trestles of the Railroad Bridge cross over several neighborhoods on the northside of town. The Mid-Hudson Bridge, (as I probably will always call it) remains a popular symbol of the city and is graceful both in its design and setting. There are few things comparable to walking across the span in the fall, heading towards Highland on the southern walkway with the foliage in front of you, and then back on the other side seeing the City of Poughkeepsie rise up out of the Hudson. The image from Waryas Park of the sun going down between the bridges will always be a source of poetry to those who view it.
