This composition paints a picture of belligerent and brave Vikings. After a short introduction the lofty main theme is heard, accompanied by sombre drum sounds. A brief idyllic passage follows that evokes a beautiful landscape. Gradually, a heroic melody is revealed, leading to a great tutti, in which the rousing main theme is heard once more. Return of the Vikingscloses with the sound of heroic brass and festive chords.
