BATTLECRY

When:  June 3, 2017 | 7.30pm
Where: Brunswick Town Hall, 233 Sydney Rd, Brunswick

You are a warrior, wielding a bloodied sword and a scarred flag, marching resolutely towards your enemy. You will fight, and you will win. We hit you with epic orchestral moments from World of Warcraft and a suite from epic video games. There’s also a good dose of Beethoven for you purists out there.
 

Ludwig van Beethoven
Overture to Egmont

Based on the heroic pursuits of a Dutch nobleman (the 16th Century’s own McDreamy), Beethoven delivers a powerful and dramatic piece that reflected his own political discontent with the then Emperor of the Universe, Napoleon.

Arr. Jerry Brubaker
World of Warcraft

  • Wrath of the Lich King
  • Lament of the Highborne
  • Lion’s Pride

The orchestra plays from the icy shelf of Northrend – there’s no need to bring your headset, though, this is W.O.W. in real time.

Arr. Ralph Ford
Video Games Live Suite

Your classic fantasy adventure in real time. Majestic brass melodies take you from Civilisation IV, to Bounty Hunter and Kingdom Hearts.

Adam Khachaturian
Adagio from Spartacus Suite No.2

Queue the armies and the blood and the gore, 300 style. You’re in the middle of an epic battle in the wastes of a far-flung continent.

Camille Saint-Saëns
Marche Héroïque

From the forgotten French master comes a majestic ode to victorious warriors.  

Michael Daugherty
Red Cape Tango

This death chant tango provides the backing to Doomsday’s destruction of Superman.
