Publisher/Composer info about the piece:

‘Mountain Songs is a cycle of eight songs based largely on American folk music. Most of the tunes, as reflected by their titles, are lyric ballads from the southern mountains of Appalachia with the exception of Cindy, a minstrel fiddle song, and Hush You Bye, a popular lullaby from the Deep South. Quicksilver, which ends the cycle, is a wholly original song written in collaboration with the American poet Daniel Mark Epstein.

While the cycle is based on folk material, each song is original and through-composed.

Robert Beaser

Born in Boston, Beaser studied literature, political philosophy, and music at Yale College before earning his Master of Music, M.M.A., and Doctor of Musical Arts degrees from the Yale School of Music. He has received extensive recognition for his compositions, including prestigious awards such as the Prix de Rome and fellowships from the Guggenheim and Fulbright Foundations. Beaser’s music has been commissioned and performed by renowned orchestras, ensembles, and artists worldwide, and his works have been featured on numerous recordings.

As a prominent figure among the “New Tonalists,” he skillfully combines Western tradition with American vernacular, forging his own distinctive musical language.

Currently, he serves as Professor and Chairman of the Composition Department at the Juilliard School in New York.
