Battle Music dooktcha
Fri Apr 12 2002 01:30
Hello, I need to know some good classical battle music or upbeat music for a movie trailer that I'm going to make for a war movie. So if anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it. I know that Carl Orff made an upbeat song like Carmina Burana - O Fortuna that has been used before, but I would like to try some other similar music that I could possibly use. Thanks. Dooktcha

Try "The Battle on the Ice" from "Alexander Nevsky" by Prokofiev. Another possibility might be the "1812 Overture" by Tchaikovsky (warlike lot these Russians!), but that's so familiar it might end up distracting the audience from the on-screen action!

This may seem like a strange suggestion but how about the Dies Irae from Mozart's Requiem? I recently heard it in a NASCAR commercial and was surprised at how appropriate it sounded. Look for a recording with a large orchestra and chorus for a heavier sound.

Shostakovich's 11 Symphony ("1905")
Vaughan Williams 4 Symphony
