Program Notes

In Norse mythology, warriors that died in combat were chosen by Odin to enter Valhalla to prepare for Ragnarok or were sent to the field Fólkvangr ruled by the goddess Freyja. Those that were chosen to enter Valhalla were known as the Einherjar, (pronounced “En-hair-ee-are”). Einherjar: Warriors of Valhalla evokes the courage, strength, and valor of these Viking soldiers, with its heroic sound characterized by heavy accents, aggressive percussion, and driving ostinatos. This challenging work brings a feeling of adventure and excitement to the concert band setting.
