Serpent Sea

4th Movement of The Seas of the Moon

Serpent Sea

4th Movement of The Seas of the Moon

Series: MusicWorks Grade 4 Format: Softcover Score & Parts Composer: Robert Buckley

Level: 4

The fourth movement of Robert Buckley's grandly cinematic suite describing impressions of the “seas” of the moon, Serpent Sea is animated, exuberant and somewhat over-the-top. It was inspired by the idea of two huge winged serpents rising out of the waves and frolicking together in a wild, barbaric dance. The pair do, however, show a more graceful side every once in a while – represented by an exotic theme that starts in the clarinet and flute. The movement ends with a wild flurry as the serpents vanish back into the sea. Dur: 3:50
