Aaron Jay Kernis For Love of the Mountains - (Four Tableaux) (2016)
Composer note:
For Love of the Mountains is a brief fanfare for winds, brass and percussion which announces and celebrates the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Maestro Donald Runnicles' directorship of the Grand Teton Music Festival. I couldn't help but visualize the sense of space and height of the Tetons while writing it, and tried to create a sense of grandeur and openness that the mountains evoke in my memory.

A confection such as this piece is but a token of a much larger affection and esteem that this Orchestra, its players, board, staff and I hold for Donald. He is a truly inspiring musician and leader, and an extraordinary human being, and the notes and inspiration behind it are offered from the heart, with the generous support of so many who have been touched by his presence and music-making over the last ten years.

— Aaron Jay Kernis
