Michael Mauldin
Commissioned by the New Mexico Music Teachers Association and the Music Teachers Association, winner of the 1980 MTNA Composer of the Year Competition; premiered November 1, 1980 at the NMMTA state convention by the composer and the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra Woodwind Quintet, then showcased at the MTNA national convention April 28, 1981 in Phoenix, performed by Mauldin and the Gammage WW Quintet from Arizona State University.
Dedicated to the memory of Paul B. Muench, an Albuquerque teacher and pianist, who was killed in a 1978 aircraft accident, the work was written to provide advanced pianists of high-school or college age with a solo work and instrumental accompaniment of chamber proportions. It was the first of Mauldin's pieces inspired by Chaco Canyon, the capitol and Mecca of the Anasazi (a Navajo word meaning "the ancient ones"). The Chacoans created beautiful cities, accurate solar/lunar markers, intricate artwork, straight roads, and a far-flung trade network--all centuries before Europeans came to North America.
