Mvt. 1: "Zeus and Hades" juxtaposes good and evil, light and dark, by pitting dissonant polyrhythms and chromatic melodies against heroic fanfares and steady, driving pulses. Rising up from the sinister depths of the Underworld to the glorious heavens high above Mount Olympus, brothers Zeus and Hades unite to usurp their murderous father Cronus and defeat the Titans for rule over Mount Olympus and all of creation.

Mvt. 2: "Poseidon" is a dreamy swim downward beneath the rippling ocean waves to the mysterious yet compelling dominion of the ruler of the seas and all waters. Lyrical and soaring melodies convey the vastness and wonder of the oceans before revealing the awesome and powerful god Poseidon himself.
