Most people are terrified of snakes, but they don't seem quite so frightening when hearing this programmatic work. The whole percussion section introduces the piece before a slinky alto sax solo takes on the part of the snake charmer. Once the full ensemble joins the dance, the melodic lines are punctuated with rhythmic figures. This invigorating piece will have everyone thinking that snakes might not be so bad after all.
