A fantastic full symphonic experience for the full orchestra! "The winds of Poseidon" joins "The Isle of Calypso" in the Second Symphony from the pen of Robert W. Smith. This work, the second movement of the symphony, is based on the classic story, The Odyssey. Odysseus is the shipwrecked warrior who wanders the land and sea for ten years, and this bold musical statement captures the essence of the powerful winds and waves that propel Odysseus on his journey. The center section was inspired by the tale of the Sirens, whose beautiful and captivating singing lured sailors to their deaths onÂ the rocks. The genius of the composer is strongly in evidence in this gigantic musical tale.
