Program Notes

The symphony consists of two parts of three movements each. The two parts separate the two most important mountain ranges: Part 1, Serra de Tramuntana and Part 2, Serra de Arta. Each movement represents a mountain or (in the case of the 5th movement) a mountain region.

Mont Ferrutx is a mountain of most imposing shape. From the north it looks an unclimbable, sheer, monolithic edifice. Its name is very close to the Mallorquin for "ferocious," which suits its looks admirably. However, from the south side it is a fairly easy stroll to the peak. I have been up this mountain several times and it never ceases to thrill, although it is not for those suffering from vertigo.
