Music Monday: “Lord of the Rings Symphony” by Johan de Meij

My wife’s concert band played this movement of the Lord of the Rings Symphony yesterday. She had been talking about how much she enjoyed playing it and was certain that I would like it. She was right.

Johan de Meij wrote this piece not for an orchestra but for a concert band in 1988, before the Peter Jackson movies. The clip posted here was arranged for the London Symphony Orchestra.

On a Monday in mid April… it seems like just the thing.
