The second movement

This is the second movement of my symphonic work Raised by the Spirit. It's performed with NotePerformer in Sibelius. I have another movement ready, but I don't know if it's the third or the fourth. I'm working on another movement, so we'll see where it ends up. This is the second anyway and the whole work turns out pretty well in my ears. Getting Sibelius and NotePerformer was a game changer for me : )

  • Hello Lennart,

    This is really marvelous.  Very well done in all respects.  I think it follows the 1st movement perfectly.  It is equally beautiful and the two are perfectly fit.  It is much shorter than the 1st movement (about 1/2 as long), but feels right.

    I notice that the 1st movement, called an Andante, is more lively than this 2nd movement, which is called Moderato.  I was a little surprised by the usage of "Moderato" here.  The term just means "moderate", correct?  Is it an Andante Moderato?  And is the 1st movement an Andantino?  (Feel free to reply with a big "who cares?" :-))

  • Ah, but I do care : )

    I'm thinking of calling the movements just - wait for it - movement. The old italian names seems a bit dated, and to tell the truth I'm not quite sure how to use them. I have one more finished movement, the orchestrated version of my Fantasy for two pianos, but I'm not sure if that is the third or the fourth movement. It's pretty slow too but I think itmight be a better ending. I'm working on another movement to fit in between the second and the fourth, but I haven't decided on that one yet. I have one readdy composed, but I think it's a bit too prolific. Don't want to involve too many high profile melodies in one piece. I will post the third/fourth movement too and see if you guys can give me a little guidance there.

  • Hi, Lennart.  Sounds great, I look forward to the 2 new movements.  I hope you will get other reviewers, though. 

  • Thanks again, Lennart. You are being listened to with appreciation.
