Mountain Songs
Beaser, R

Robert Beaser presents the Mountain Songs for flute and guitar. Commissioned by Paula Robison and nominated for a Grammy award in 1986, this music has since become a standard and enjoys constant programming and performance.

[In] Robert Beaser s Mountain Songs a fondness for Appalachian songs is palpable. Many will recognise English, Irish and Scottish ballads transplanted into a Newfoundland land. Barbara Allen, for instance, is given a cautiously wistful patina, with discreet taps on the body of the guitar, whereas we have a vibrant and fast moving setting of House Carpenter. One of the most successful of these eight settings is He s Gone Away. Here melancholic yearning is contrasted with faster, cocksure passages, neatly reflecting the ballad s duality. The Cuckoo sports rather more convoluted harmonies than its ballad mates a dirgeful and unsettled, unsettling setting. Finally we have as its title suggests a really ebullient piece to close in the shape of Quicksilver.
