Overture: The Hills and Valleys is the first movement of a three-movement Trio for Oboes (in the classical formal sense) entitled The Mountain Suite. The form is that of a classical sonata-allegro first movement.
As with the other two movements, the melodic material is amply passed around the ensemble; the musical language is that of quartal harmony and some mixed meter.
