A long time ago i listened to a very special musical piece.
It was composed in such a way that when you listened to it, you have the feeling there were actually 3 orchestras arguing. Essentially instruments were grouped by feeling and tone somehow. For example, one part was playing and sounded deep and jolly like a happy man's voice and the other part was quiet... then responded in a high and energetic female like fashion. The entire piece was like this, sometimes the background "story teller" came in, musically describing the "setting".
Very similar to the accompaniment to an Theatrical Play.
Can anyone tell me what music like this is called and give examples? Maybe I can find it again.
