iPhone and iPad: preview March to War at SoundCloud.
Epic and dramatic cinematic music in the minor key for full symphony orchestra. Full string, brass, woodwind and percussion sections. 130bpm.
The piece begins with a thumping brass and percussion ostinato figure, ominous and full of portent, building the tension to about halfway through when a triumphant and sweeping theme is stated on brass, later joined by sweeping violins.
The music reaches a dramatic climax, where the whole orchestra crescendos in a increasing cacophony of sound to a dramatic final staccato chord.
