Notes This dramatic narrative is based on the Nordic myth about the Thunder God, Thor, and his mighty hammer, Mjollnir. The two dwarves that forged its mystic metal said it burned with white hot intensity. Clip 1 is the opening of the Horn Concerto where you can hear the metallic sounds of a forge. Clip 2 imitates the rolling thunder and the lightning bolts of the hammer in battle.
