  • Notes & Instrumentation

    This piece, a tonal and atonal concert overture, depicts the final ascent of mount doom by Frodo and Samwise form J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Return of The King," from "The Lord of The Rings." Driving rhythms, dense harmonic sonorities, and melodic Romanticism in this piece reflect the excitement, drama, and sheer power of the Tolkien Trilogy.

    Program Notes
    Towers, based upon a theme from the first movement of McCarthy's Chamber Symphony for Marimba and Winds, was inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien's The Two Towers from the epic tome The Lord of the Rings. Driving rhythms, dense harmonic sonorities, and melodic Romanticism in this piece reflect the excitement, drama, and sheer power of the Tolkien Trilogy. This music is also about the seemingly insurmountable power of darkness and evil on earth. But it is also about the power of the human spirit, the power of light and hope that can emerge, unexpected, during our bleakest hours.
