Fire Mountain

Two versions available: 1) one piano - four hands and 2) two pianos

 

Fire Mountain was inspired by the Bulgarian folk song A Brave Companion (Ogûn gori na Balkan) as transcribed in Folk Songs of Europe (ed. Maud Karpeles).  In this setting the melody gradually unfolds interspersed with rhythmic ostinati and imitative passages. The final section begins with a canon and concludes with a unison finale.
