SAGA Preview Clips by BenBotkin

My newest album is officially released: SAGA.

Sail with buccaneers and descend into dragons’ lairs, traverse Egyptian deserts and Amazonian jungles, be moved to tears and stirred to action. From composer Benjamin Botkin comes SAGA, a new album of musical pieces in the rich tradition of orchestral cinematic music. Enjoy a musical tapestry that offers a diversity of flavors, from epic chorales and ethnic atmospheres to soaring string melodies and symphonic majesty. (SPECIFICATIONS: 20 tracks, approx 44 mins, 320kbps MP3 files)

The content of this album is a mixture of some popular tracks I’ve written over the last couple years, along with a number of ones never before posted online before or made available for sale–it’s about half-and-half, actually.
