(May 21, 2015): Jesús Guridi – Sinfonía Pirenaica (1945)

From the 2005 album, Sinfonía Pirenaica.  This is a 2003 recording by the Bilboa Symphony Orchestra with Juan José Mena conducting.  Guridi, who plays to my Basque sensibilities, said that this symphony is a musical evocation of the soul of the Pyrenees mountains and the dangers they represent.  I think of it as an older brother to Alan Hovhaness’s “Mysterious Mountain”.
