Brass Band Solo Series - Grade 5 (Soloist 6)
A virtuosic tenor trombone solo by Dan Price.
Commissioned in 2015 by trombone virtuoso Brett Baker, Cloud Rider takes inspiration from Norse mythology and the legend of the Valkyries. The Valkyries are a host of female figures who ride great steeds and hover over the battle field, deciding which warriors will live and which will die. Once the battle is over the Valkyries collect the dead soldiers and carry them back to the afterlife, to the realm of Asgard, laying them at the feet of Odin in his great “Hall of the Slain”, Valhalla.
