Battles in Music


$ 19.99

For the fortunate among us, this double-disc set will come as close as we ever dare hope to get to an actual battle. The brilliant showpieces on this 2-CD collection show what orchestral forces can accomplish in the telling of the story of battle, real or imagined. As the captain leads his company of troops, the conductors lead their respective orchestras into the musical fray, armed with works by Prokofiev, Holst, Roy Harris, Shostakovich, and more exciting works.
