Program Notes

Cold Mountain in North Carolina was made famous by the best-selling novel and major motion picture of the same name. This piece for young band is not intended to depict the story of the book or movie, but rather to depict the rich history and natural beauty of the area itself. The hauntingly beautiful melody first stated by a recorder is one of the most memorable Larry Clark has ever written. This piece has become a standard for young band and now is available in a flexible setting for the first time.
