About

How to depict scenes of battle in music is a task that has long fascinated composers. From the dawning of the Renaissance, the first successful programmatic works appeared from Susato, Dowland and Biber. But it was the nineteenth and twentieth centuries that witnessed a true flourishing, when composers utilised the full resources of contemporary symphonism to evoke the tumult of battle. Later, the medium of film, notably those produced in Hollywood, brought with it colourful and gripping scores.
