Lias' musical tell of a heroic rescue attempt high up the majestic Mount Rainier was inspired by actual events in 2004. The music reflects the all-too-common desperation, cries for help, and heroism (often futile) engendered by disasters, both personal and regional. The themes heard here could as easily be inspired by events in Japan, Haiti, Houston, or Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. A hugely dramatic work for advanced performers.
