Robert W. Smith - Alfred Publishing Belwin Division
The Winds of Poseidon joins last year's Isle of Calypso as movements from Robert W. Smith's Second Symphony. Based on the classic Greek myth, "The Odyssey." Odysseus is the shipwrecked warrior who wanders the land and sea for years, and this bold musical statement captures the essence of the powerful winds and waves that propel Odysseus on his journey. The center section was inspired by the tale of the Sirens, whose beautiful and captivating singing lured sailors to their deaths on the rocks.
