Rise of the Bladesmith

Brian Balmages
Grade: 0.5

Conjuring images of a master craftsman forging the perfect sword, this dramatic work portrays the intense heat and relentless pounding as the blade begins to take shape. A reference to the Dies Irae conveys the image of glowing metal, which almost seems to resemble molten lava. With no eighth notes in the wind parts, this piece is truly accessible to the youngest of musicians! (1:15) Correlated with Book 1, Opus 2
