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.

Morey is the tallest mountain in the Serra de Arta range. It has a sheer face to the north looking out to sea over the bay of Alcudia. The climb from the south side is very steep and very long. I lost both big toenails reaching its peak, which goes a long way in explaining the sombre mood of the music.
