This has probably been my biggest challenge yet. Writing a symphony, especially one of a cyclic nature, is difficult. I'm allowed to say that now, cause I've just done it.
Most of you listeners that follow my work will have already listened to the first three movements, but it might be an idea to refamiliarise yourself with them before you listen to this because it is filled with themes from the previous movements that have been developed and weaved in with the main theme of this finale. The main theme of this finale is a simple six note riff that is '' doh - ray - me, me - ray - doh'' in a minor scale. You will here it right at the beginning on the 2nd violins and violas. Then follows numerous variations of this motif of which several longer melodies arise and intertwine with material from the rest of the symphony.
I hope you enjoy listening to it with as much painful pleasure as I had writing it.
