Happy Monday! Welcome to LA BATTALIA WEEK on IPR's Kids Commute - classical music for kids!
This week, we're hearing a groundbreaking piece by German Baroque composer Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber. He created a musical representation of a battle from start to finish, and even invented new techniques for musicians to use to create the sounds he was looking for.
Today, we'll hear the introduction/first movement of LA BATTALIA. It sets up the piece, and includes the sound of soldiers marching to the battlefield.
