Dennis Alexander's New Mexico: Land of Enchantment is a journey through the state's historic Spanish past, its Native American influences, and one of its most beautiful natural landmarks, the Sandia Mountains. The suite begins with "Popé's Rebellion," a musical depiction of the famous Pueblo Revolt of 1680. It features a majestic introduction followed by a fast and agitated main theme in 7/8 meter. The second movement, "Kokopelli Magic," uses playful rhythms and articulations to capture the personality of the trickster god, Kokopelli. "Sunset on the Sandias," the final movement, is a lyrical display of the beautiful colors that fall on this natural landmark at sunset. "Popé's Rebellion" and "Sunset on the Sandias" are Federation Festivals 2016-2020 selections.
