This strong and ponderous piece is a musical depiction of Hannibal's epic journey through the Alps with his army of war elephants. The piece serves as a great vehicle to inspire the imaginations of the very youngest of orchestra musicians. Students will enjoy bringing this elephantine cast of characters alive through their instruments.
