Program Notes

There are many different myths about how the sword Excalibur came into King Arthur’s possession, and all lead to him being recognized as the true ruler of England. In one myth, Arthur draws the sword from a mighty stone and anvil. In another, the king retrieves Excalibur from the Lady of the Lake. Regardless of which story is true, or which one believes is true, this piece reflects King Arthur’s quest to find Excalibur. Grand themes and driving rhythms make this fun to play and to listen to.
