About This Work

‘Descent into the Maelstrom’ is a new composition by Ian Macpherson depicting an epic journey into the mouth of a whirlpool, spinning down and down through its never ending vortex. 

Full of energy this vibrant, high impact work makes an ideal concert opener and will enthral your audience with its energy, power and emotion. Another fantastic addition by Ian to the contemporary concert band repertoire and a great companion to his highly successful work Labyrinth.

22/01/2014 - This is a great overture and fun to play and conduct. I purchased it for a Royal British Legion Band I conducted and also purchased it for a Help for Heroes Band I have set up. Thanks to Ian for this cracking overture. - Comment by David Smart
