Grade 2

Duration: 5:40

Take your audience on a journey through the darker, more sinister side of classical Mussorgsky’s “Night on Bald Mountain” complete with it's driving rhythmic bass lines contrasted with flowing woodwind melodies.  Next, we change pace with Berlioz’ “March to the Scaffold” from his “Symphonie Fantastique” with all it's dark foreboding of impending doom. For the finale, we close with excerpts from “Dream of a Witches’ Sabbath” also from “Symphonie Fantastique” by Berlioz.  This final section features some driving percussion and huge chords building to a dramatic conclusion.  This “dark” but fun show offers many visual possibilities.
