Volver a la Montaña

Shelley Hanson

 

Volver a la Montaña (“Return to the Mountain”) is the second of four movements from the suite Islas y Montañas by Shelley Hanson. It is based on folk tunes of the Quechua (Inca) people of Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. To invoke the sound of the mountains, trumpets are muted, flutes use harmonics, and a bombo (Andes drum) is used.

Shelley Hanson (b. 1951) is a composer, conductor, record producer, and clarinetist. She received a Ph.D in Performance, Music Theory and Music Literature from Michigan State University. She has conducted university orchestras and wind ensembles and served on the faculty of Macalester College in St. Paul, MN. Principal clarinetist of the Minneapolis Pops Orchestra, she has recorded orchestral and chamber music. Her band, Klezmer and All That Jazz, have performed widely.
