Program Notes

A thrilling programmatic work from the pen of Rossano Galante, Sword of the Titansis a musical portrayal of a journey of a group of titans in their quest to retrieve one of their stolen swords that was lost in battle. The sword possesses great magical powers and is vital to their reign. The music describes this adventure with dark, melodic lines in the horns, and majestic fanfares in the trumpets and trombones. Ultimately, the titans retrieve their stolen sword as the work concludes, utilizing powerful brass fanfares and woodwind ostinati.
