Strong full ensemble hits open this production before giving way to the front ensemble and the crackling of ice.
The pit increases the tempo as low drums continue the build before a quick middle voice feature starts a full
ensemble impact. The battery takes center stage with woodwind support, leaving room for other musical voices
to feature themselves on top of the percussion. Complex voicing gives sophistication as the winds finish each
others’ phrases before a full ensemble build and crash to the end.
Wind and rain noises open the ballad accompanied by musical flourishes. On top of these building and diminishing
phrases each musical voice is given the opportunity to be showcased leading to a build with a unique ethereal sound.
A steam train powered by the battery and front ensemble leads us into the closer while train bells add ambiance
in the background. As the train noises pick up speed, the brass add in, further embellishing the illusion. A break
from the build gives the woodwinds a chance to show off with impressive runs before the percussion and a
fanfare of brass begin the build once more, finally bringing an end to H2O.
