- Additional Information
“When sun shines on Los Andes” is inspired by the mountain range, which forms the natural border between Argentina and Chile. Every time the composer comes here, he is amazed by the huge rocks, the magical lakes and the brilliant colors which arise because there shines a bright, hot sun on this beautiful landscape. The original inhabitants of these mountains were Indians, who unfortunately were expelled or exterminated by the white population. The composer has imagined a day when the Indians still lived in peace in this beautiful area.
