Cue of the Week: “Gideon’s Ride”

0 Comment

This week I’m breaking from my usual stream of music for films, video games, and the like. Today’s selection is an instrumental excerpt from Gideon and the Blundersnorp, a concert piece for orchestra and narrator. As you might guess from the title, this is a fantasy story aimed at younger audiences. In performance, the music and story interweave in a way that’s reminiscent of Peter and the Wolf.

There’s no narration in this excerpt, but the music will give you a sense of the tale’s quasi-medieval storybook setting.
