Product details

The second golden age of Babylonian history was born after the destruction of the Assyrian empire by the Medians, in collaboration with the Babylonians, in 614 BC. During this period Babylon was ruled by King Nabopolassar (625-605 BC), father of King Nebuchadrezzar II (604-562 BC). It was during the reigns of these two kings, especially of Nebuchadrezzar II, that Babylon reached the summit of her glory. The remains of Babylon visible to the tourist today are largely the work of these two kings. Moreover, most of the monuments preserved are those of Nebuchadrezzar II, during whose reign Babylon achieved the architectural pre-eminence for which it is renowned. It was this vision of Nebuchadrezzar's Babylon which led Katia Tiutiunnik - an expatriate senior lecturer at the Faculty of Music, Universiti Teknologi MARA - to compose her large scale symphonic poem Wonders of Babylon for trombone and wind orchestra.
