Vicino alla Montagna Op.58b | Digging Deeper

— «Vicino alla Montagna» doesn't only sound like a movie score, it actually is the music to a film with the same title. Again Beppe paints whole landscapes with his music; in this case we are taken to the mountains. I have not seen the movie, but I imagine his intent was not merely to describe a beautiful mountain view, but to show us a powerful panorama that reminds us of how little influence we can take over nature. A remarkable composition.

— Flint Juventino Beppe as pictorial artist is also abundantly present in his music – «Vicino alla Montagna» Op.58b is music to a film with the same title. Beppe paints landscape panoramas with a steady, sure hand. And, from his point of view as a film maker, he seeks long lines in the artistic discourse – like Richard Strauss in his Alpensinfonie he uses the entire expressive register of the orchestra to describe the magnificent peaks in all their inward and outward facets. Unlike Strauss, however, Beppe's portrayal is darker and more stringent: we are certainly not in the Alps, rather in the weatherbeaten mountains of northern Norway where nature, not man, decides.
Wolfgang Plagge, professor
