Since its premiere by the Baltimore Symphony in 1991 at Carnegie Hall, the GRAMMY®-winning Metropolis Symphony has entered the orchestral repertoire and been performed by orchestras all over the world. Arranged for band by Mark Sped under the supervision of the composer, Red Cape Tango is set after Superman's fight to the death with Doomsday and is Daugherty's final work based on the Superman mythology. The principal melody, first heard in the bassoon, is derived from the medieval Latin death chant Dies Irae. The band alternates between legato and staccato sections to suggest a musical bullfight. Duration - ca. 11:00.
