This fragment of music written in 1901 by an 18-year-old Grainger was originally designed for a massive orchestra. Inspired by a 1900 train journey through the mountains of Italy, Grainger envisioned it for a huge orchestra of 150 players, including 8 oboes and 6 bassoons. The composer got only as far as a fragment of between one and two minutes.
