3/5. "My success is quite a surprise to me; for the first half of my life I was known as the composer who was never performed. I had no luck until the great conductor
Leopold Stokowski conducted one of my pieces and decided to champion my work." The 1950s marked the high tide of Alan Hovhaness 's success as a composer, in particular with works such as Mysterious Mountain, which was championed by Fritz Reiner. Today Donald Macleod recounts the story of this period. Upon Enchanted Ground, Op 90 No 1
