Concert assistance requested

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm looking for music and soundtracks especially from games but also from movies that tells about the hero's journey monomyth. I'm looking for ideas for a concert with pianos, violins and singers to conjure a musical image about it. The hero's journey is this compression of different heroic stories, epics and ballads into one common arch that they often follow.


So the music I'm looking is themes that describe these particular phases in the journey (included some examples):

The Call to Adventure: the initiating incident of the story
---In Hobbit Gandalf draws the dinner invitation symbol to Bilbo's door.

Meeting with the Mentor: the hero gains the supplies, knowledge, and confidence needed to commence the adventure.
---In Harry Potter Harry meets Hagrid.

Crossing the First Threshold: the hero commits wholeheartedly to the adventure and moves from a casual world into the mystical - a realm where the quest happens.
---In Narnia the children enter the wardrobe.

Trials: the hero explores the special world, faces trial, and makes friends and enemies.
---In Avatar Jake learns from the na'vi after getting stuck in the jungle.

Growth: the hero nears the center of the story and the special world and acquires new skills. 
---In How to train your dragon Hiccup and Tootless take their first flight.

Death & Rebirth: the hero faces the greatest challenge yet and experiences death and rebirth. The heroes former self disintegrates and a new self is born.
---In Warcraft 3 Thrall Jaina Tyrande and Furion face Archimonde in Mount Hyjal.

Revelation: the hero experiences the consequences of surviving the journey.
---In Les Miserables Marius sings the Empty chairs at empty tables.

Changes: the hero discovers something new in themselves.
---In Fellowship of the ring Frodo sees the power of the ring and his ability to resist it.

Atonement: the hero comes face to face with the death & rebirth and redefines himself, purification.
---In Fellowship of the ring Frodo chooses to bear the burden alone and leaves.

Gets gift: the hero receives a thought, idea, relationship, object or power that allows him to change the world from where he entered the mystical.
---In Fellowship of the ring Sam joins the escaping Frodo.

Return with the change: the hero returns with something to improve the ordinary world.
---Literally most endings (In fellowship of the Frodo and Sam continuing the quest).

Comment! What music, songs or soundtracks fits each part of the storyarch in your opinion!?
