Hi everyone, first post!
I'd like to share my first symphony, which was also my first original orchestral work (i.e. not an arrangement). I wrote this in one month in 2019, even though some basic ideas date from many years before. It was an agonic month, since I could barely think about anything else.
I've refined the orchestration a bit since then. I'm self-taught but I've gotten feedback in a few spots by pros, and I've also implemented new things I've learned on my own.
This was written with an overall early-20th-century aesthetic in mind, combined with very strong jazz influences. The first movement's in sonata form with an introduction, then follows a somewhat grotesque waltz (in lieu of a scherzo), then a dreamy slow movement, and finally some sort of pseudo-ragtime in rondo form.
