Commissioned by the Atlanta Music Teachers Association.
Premiered at Saint Peter’s Church/Citigroup, June 6, 2006.
Dialogues with the Distant Mountains is inspired by the wide-open spaces of northern California, the uneven beats of Balkan folk music, and Joseph Campbell’s idea of the hero’s journey. The three short movements have a lyrical, early 20th-century French feeling flavored with a bluesy aspect.
Audio examples, Javier Oviedo, alto sax; Marcia Eckert, piano
