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.

Puig Major is the tallest mountain on the island of Mallorca, but unfortunately is closed to visitors and climbers because there is an important military installation on the top. What better excuse to make the movement a march?
