Program Notes

Strap into your seats and hang on for a wild musical ride. This exciting work spins a musical tale of a Viking expedition into the frigid North Atlantic seas, first depicting the high spirits of the sailors as they set out to sea. The slower middle portion of the work chillingly depicts a scene of navigating in dense, icy fog, and the work culminates in an aggressive way, using a wild aleatoric section to help depict the Vikings attack on a sea village. 12/8 time, supremely colorful and exciting percussion writing, and important melodic moments for all instruments further characterize this wild nautical musical adventure.
