Calls to war are the prelude to this first movement of Robert W. Smith's Second Symphony for band, based on the classic story of 'The Odyssey'. You'll experience the squeaky wheels of the Trojan horse, the forest burning, and the sword fight amidst the distinguished regal melodies and energetic rhythms that drive to a conclusion. The ocean's presence is evident in the optional transition to the second movement, "The Winds of Poseidon" (BD9923). Much awaited, this work is monumental in nature. (7:44).

    The Iliad is based on the story of the Odessey. Or the story of Odesseus, as stated in Greek Mythology. When I first heard this song, it was!! It is truly amazing. And how I know, you ask. Well... I played this in a marching show. And we...

    got great marks in music. It has powerful brass entrances, soaring woodwinds, and intense percussion. If you like songs that have meaning and adventure, you will like "The Iliad." It is truly a work of genius.
