David Knotts' Coyote Star Song for Piano Trio.
American Indian myth tells the story of Coyote who makes a ladder stretching from earth to sky. Five wolves climb up to have a closer look at the two grizzly bears they can see from down below. Coyote warns them not to get too close but their curiosity gets the better of them. The wolves look at the bears: the bears look at the wolves. ‘that looks good’ thinks Coyote, so he leaves them there. Coyote makes pictures of stars all over the sky. - David Knotts
