with a sense of solemn reverence and anticipation,
this highly energetic work takes place in France during
the Middle Ages. As a knight sets up camp in front
of a bridge, the battles begin when other knights
try to gain passage. Driving rhythms represent the
energy of battle while a wide array of percussion
mimics the clash of distant swords and battle cries.
Eventually, both themes are juxtaposed before a final
victorious statement emerges. Intense!
