American Highways #80 | Men and Mountains
14 April 18:00 CET. AMERICAN HIGHWAYS #80: MEN AND MOUNTAINS
The mountain is a handy metaphor – for the insignificance of man perhaps, for the attainment of spiritual wisdom, for the conquering of our fears; and a reminder that ours is a planet built on nature’s awesome strength.
This is music about mountains. Music of Alan Hovanness, Carl Ruggles, Bernard Hermann, and the Ives Brothers: that’s Charles Ives, and Burl Ives, right?
In this episode of American Highways, pianist Guy Livingston brings us weighty, powerful, serious music by rugged, maverick, heavily bearded composers.
