(from "The Creatures of Prometheus")Ludwig van Beethoven/arr. Rick England - Alfred Music Publishing
Absolutely perfect for cross-curricular study in middle school or high school! Prometheus, through trickery, stole fire from Zeus, gave it to mortals and was punished daily for eternity for his crime. Beethoven's melody itself has a bit of trickery and a good deal of moxy as it weaves through each section of the orchestra. The story and Beethoven's marvelous music will provide good discussion among the players and even your audience.
