The Mountain for two clarinets in B-flat is inspired by the poem “My Help is in the Mountain” by Nancy Wood (1936-2013). This work describes going to the mountain to find healing, to draw inspiration from the rocks and streams, and to become one with all of the land, finding strength from nature and from within. Throughout this piece for 2 clarinets there is a sense of beauty and awe of the power of nature - from the joy of finding oneself in nature, to the flowing waters passing by the trees. The work creates a sense of the majesty of a mountain and forest, but also how nature can heal the soul. There are moments of joy and hope, moments of reflection, playfulness, and solitude.

This work was commissioned by the La HERmandad Duo (Carrie RavenStem and Adria Sutherland) and premiered during Clarinetfest 2022 in Reno, Nevada.
