The Mountain Connection

"The Mysterious Mountain" by Robert M. Jones, from the cover of the RCA Living Stereo recording of Hovhaness's Second Symphony.

 

To some, they are a beautiful and majestic escape from the workaday world—uplifting and spiritual.  To others a barrier—challenging, even threatening.

In this hour, "mountain music" by Berlioz (Harold In Italy), Richard Strauss (An Alpine Symphony), Hovhaness (Mysterious Mountain) and more.
