The entire theme of the larger piece is super contrasting sections in the same movements, and how they shouldn't make sense. It is supposed to be almost like a child's unfiltered stream of conciousness. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJpelZLbrxQ

"Hi Brandon,

Tiziano Palazzotti replied to Brandon Schwab's discussion VINO, II - SHIRAZ. Symphony for Winds. The second movement to my first symphony. Each movement is about a different wine.

"I enjoyed this on the whole, particularly the lively section starting from 2'37" -- I felt things took a while to warm up. The NotePerformer saxophones are hardly the best for slower music in particular but even so the moody closing pages worked…"

" Hi Brandon,
The colorful and varied orchestration I thought to be the strength of this piece - there are some nice louder vs. quieter sections, high energy sections (mostly with a chromatically descending chord pattern) into low energy/quieter…"

"Hi Brandon,
nice music you have put together here. How did it started? Did you play the themes on some instrument or did you create from the score?
The score is not visible. Maybe you should try to utilize the full screen somehow. Maybe divide the…"

"Really really liked it! Since I've never listened to saxophone ensemble like this. In times, it reminds me of music by Snarky Puppy, which I'm a huge fan of. I believe this could also be applied to a jazz band as well. But the ensemble like this is…"
