“Hero” is a piece I composed about a – you guessed it – Hero. Sometimes I picture the hero as a Greek or Roman sword-weilding hero, and sometimes I picture the hero as a Link or a Frodo. Other times the hero is just a normal person, but no matter the definition, the story is the same. A hero sets out on a journey only to come across an insurmountable challenge which nearly destroys all hope until the hero rises triumphant from the ashes. That is what this piece is about.
