Edit: Added the score.
Happy quarantining, everyone!
Though I haven't been as productive as I'd wish, I did find the inspiration (and time!) to piece together my first symphony—of sorts. It's not a "full-length" symphony, which I'm sure you're grateful for, but it does contain 4 distinct sections that mimic the movements of a traditional symphony. In truth, I have COVID-19 to thank for the inspiration: the fear of the loss of security is what this work aims to explore.
The symphony is about 18 minutes long and is intented to be played in one sitting; however, I don't expect anyone to listen to it in its entirety. Feel free to have a go at it section by section.
Harmonically, this work is built on a symmetrical scale (Messiaen's 4th MoLT, to be precise), so be prepared for some rather unconventional chord progressions. Yes, the work is quite tonal, but it is certainly no Mozart or Beethoven—think more Stravinsky or Ives. The symphony is organized around a central tritone motif, which can be heard from the very outset.
I had a lot of fun putting this together, and when I have more time, I'll post a score. In the meantime, please have a listen to at least part of it and let me know what you think could be improved, and how I might improve it. Also, let me know if you have any questions about anything... I'm not the best at explaining things.
Thanks in advance! Happy listening!
