Quick Overview

Based on the classic Edgar Allan Poe short story The Tell-Tale Heart, composer Alan Lee Silva shows a more dramatic and darker side to his writing. Originally commissioned as a work reminiscent of a classic Hollywood horror movie theme, the piece follows the story of one of Poe's most famous thrillers. An excellent literary tie-in for your students studying the structure of a story in Language Arts, it appeals to their sense of mystery with a delicious touch of the macabre. The basses act as the low, ominous threat of danger, and the upper voices represent the insanity of the narrator's twisted plan. A real thriller! Dur.: 4:52
