Title: Age of legends
Author: Stewart, Seth
Abstract: Age of Legends is an original orchestral composition in three movements, of approximately twenty minutes in duration. In the tradition of the literature-inspired symphonic poem, the piece is based on the celebrated fiction series The Wheel of Time , by acclaimed American author Robert Jordan (1948-2007). The title of the thesis refers to a particularly enchanting era described in the series, wherein the magical and miraculous are interwoven into everyday life. The piece's three movements portray a purely musical depiction of the breathtaking adventures that unfold throughout the fourteen-volume fantasy saga, evoking its richly imaginative scenes and thrilling, dramatic developments. Additionally, the music seeks to embody the intense emotional and psychological states experienced in the lives of The Wheel of Time 's fascinating literary characters, as they undergo defining moments of tremendous bravery, extreme peril, and exultant triumph.
