Description Commissioned by the Ensemble of Santa Fe. On visiting a favorite haunt in the mountains, I realized I had been there in all times of year and all types of weather. I had felt the wind coming from each direction, bringing with it the “spirit” of the lands and the people over which it had traveled.

"The highlight of the concert, however, was New Mexico composer Michael Mauldin's 'Mountain Winds'... With its characteristic and grateful instrumental writing and attractive, expansive melodies, it revealed Mauldin's keen descriptive power and ability to paint wholly convincing tonal pictures, descriptive of the winds that blow from the four cardinal points of the compass."
