Mercury’s March depicts imaginary scenes in a day of the life of Mercury, the god of trade and messenger of the gods. The opening features the low brass with a sly yet bold mantra that depicts Mercury boldly marching through town displaying his caduceus, a wand entwined with two serpents that has magical powers to put mortals to sleep, raise the dead, and turn anything it touches into gold. Known for trickery, his antics can be heard through glissandi in the trombones as well as a second melody that slithers and wanders. This second melody portrays Mercury’s strength by use of the Dorian mode. By highlighting the raised sixth scale degree, triumphant harmonies are created at the ends of several phrases. As the piece progresses, customers trading and bantering with Mercury can be heard in short, accented figures that pass from one group of instruments to another. In a few moments, the mantra even clashes with the melody.
