Thought I should post an interesting piece I heard on Sacramento's classical station today. It's Joseph Curiale's Gates of Gold, composed in 1994. It's a tribute to Chinese immigrants in California -- think Wild West meets East Asia, Chinese themes handled in a style reminiscent of both Aaron Copland and John Adams.

It appears the third movement ("Call of the Mountain") gets fairly frequent performances (for contemporary music, at least) as a stand-alone piece.
