Yep. Too cliché. And I can't listen to the music that Sept posted because I'm in New Zealand and it says that the poster has not made the video viewable in this country.

Well, maybe something less cliche could be the prelude of die meistersinger von nurmberg

or maybe the overture of the flying dutchman (too apotheosic?)

also can be considered euryanthe overture of weber

(I do not know if these pieces are too long but a short version has to exist somewhere)

Edit: forget everything, I just remember that this exists and I realize that it is perfect.

I still think a powerful march is the best way to go.

I disagree that a powerful march, or even march, is needed. There is usually no fighting, only a few villagers when such music is played, so why chose something more epic/... ? If you have ever played civ 5, you would notice that when you start a game, Peaceful music is played. Even if you play as the Mongolian hordes.
Also, I find it very biased to have one/(or few civs) with an epic theme. It's like making of that nation something heroic while the other's aren't (only country allowed to have very heroical is Jan Mayen or Ulm).
And yes, my country Belgium has for now a march as theme, but it is not heroic in any sense and sounds fanfaric. Which is probably the closest you can get to typical Belgium music tbh.

I never said there was any fighting involved. I just think that a powerful march is a good build-up to action later on.

You have misinterpreted my post. When does the music play? When you gather crates and when your main enemies are the treasure guardians. At such times you don't need intense music. For marches, you need an army; which you have not at this stage of the game.
