Cue of the Week: “Gideon’s Ride”

1 Comment

This week’s selection comes from a concert project I’ve been tinkering with for years, called Gideon and the Blundersnorp. This is a fantasy story for narrator and orchestra, in the tradition of Peter and the Wolf but targeted at an older audience. The orchestra accompanies the narrator like a score for a film, occasionally coming to the forefront.

Gideon had a premiere performance a number of years ago, and now sits patiently waiting for me to have enough time to return to it.

    I like the cue. In relation to the title, my interpretation is that Gideon is riding a large, relatively slow paced animal, perhaps similar to an elephant trekking in the jungle. True? Or am I off the mark?
