To Tame the Raging Rapids

To Tame the Raging Rapids composed by Brian Balmages. For string orchestra. Orchestra. FJH String Orchestra. Score only. Full set (score and parts) also available: ST6158. Grade 3. Score only. Duration 3 minutes, 40 seconds. Published by The FJH Music Company Inc (FJ.ST6158S).

Exhilaration and daring - this work describes mankind's constant fascination with some of the most powerful forces in nature. As the work opens, the beauty of the water and its sound calms the listener. Soon, however, we plunge into the water and test ourselves against the "raging rapids." Highly rhythmic and compelling, this work is destined to thrill all who perform it. Can your orchestra "tame the untamable"?
Mankind has constantly been fascinated, tempted, and humbled by the magnificent forces of nature. This work stems from my personal love of adventure and my recent intrigue with outdoor activities such as rock climbing. One amazing area to climb is located in Great Falls, a location just outside of Washington, D.C. that forms the border between Maryland and Virginia. I was reminded of a friend who accidentally fell into the water and nearly lost his life. Fortunately, he was eventually rescued by a kayaker further down the river. This work portrays the beauty of these rivers, yet cautions us as we tackle some of nature's greatest and most ferocious elements. It is a reminder that we must be extremely careful when seeking to tame the untamable.
