Notes & Reviews:
First performed in a production by Abigail Morris in March 2010 in London, The Ice Mountain is a story of the cycle of life, of loss and how to come to terms with death. The cyclical passage of time through the four seasons reflects the work's emotional journey, while the story itself is based on an old Swiss legend: The Old Woman and the Dead. Composer and conductor Ronald Corp says 'the tale is a haunting one and very poignant and I was drawn by the mystical element in the story.'
American Record Guide
It's a delicate piece effectively evocative, subtly emotional, with enough child-like, catchy tunes, the clink and clank of cowbells, and foot-tapping rhythms to entertain all. It is a splendid piece for children to perform and to listen to - a tiny, radiant gem.
