Battle Quest, score and parts composed by Mike Forbes. For string orchestra (violin I, violin II, violin III (viola T.C.), viola, cello, bass, piano). Score and parts. Duration 2 minutes, 20 seconds. Published by Carl Fischer (CF.BAS59).
Battle Quest has a feeling of a video game or movie soundtrack, with dynamic, forceful themes. However, it is still very playable for beginning string groups. Mike Forbes has penned a piece that will make your groups sound much more musically mature than their experience.
