Thus Spoke the Raven was inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's dark and mysterious poem "The Raven." Sounding particularly sophisticated for this grade level, the piece accurately depicts Poe's poem in a fun and exciting musical setting. Slightly sinister sounding percussion begins the medium-tempo introduction, which leads into an energetic and driving "Allegro." With the use of pulsing staccato accompaniments, exhilarating ostinato patterns, and stimulating syncopation, this piece has it all!
