Sun Cycles

Brian Balmages
Grade: 2.5-3

 

 

This innovative work is based on the Egyptian Sun God Ra and features a wealth of Middle Eastern percussion instruments. A mystical opening leads into the main theme of the work, representing the beginning of day. The second section, “Journey through the sky,” takes the listener on a journey with Ra as he flies through the clouds, following the sun's rotation. A dark passage represents his journey to the Underworld before the original theme returns once more to represent “Renewal.” Music then builds as an incredible series of modulating chords and textures all combine to bring the piece to a tremendous and powerful conclusion. Extremely compelling! (6:00)
