"Me too regretting the days when “ostinato” meant Bruckner and Mahler, not cheap Hans Zimmer impersonators.
(Disclaimer: HZ music is often terrific)"

"I would start the symphony from 2:53.

The string passages are too long for my taste, it is like saying a word for a long time, instead of communicating with phrases.
As I'm listening well into the 7th minute I have heard nothing substantial or…"

"Thank you all for the comments!
In chronological order:
Dane: Sorry for the late reply, I´m happy to read that you liked it. I thought it would work as a symphony - or its nutshell, at least - as it's structured (loosely) on sonata form. Hence the…"

Fabio Biolcati replied to Valerio Dalla Ragione's discussion My second symphony
"Impressive work, Valerio.
Listening at it again after leaving comment on YT.
I can hear echoes of the finest Italian orchestral tradition here.
My only complaint — a matter of personal taste indeed — is for some of the ostinato passages. I can see…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Valerio Dalla Ragione's discussion My second symphony
"A nice accomplishment.
If you wish it to be called a symphony then symphony it is although it largely came across as an impressionist piece to me about wide open spaces.
Just my views. It didn't seem to vary harmonically much nor tempo wise until…"

Ingo Lee replied to Valerio Dalla Ragione's discussion My first fugue (in four voices)
"Hi Valerio, I'm not an expert on fugal writing but a quick look tells me you are an accomplished composer who understands the form of a fugue. And of course a fugue can be anything you want it to be.  But my suggestions would be to first post your…"

Valerio Dalla Ragione replied to Valerio Dalla Ragione's discussion My first symphony
"Thank you for the feedback and all the kind words, Ingo.
Concerning my microtonal and minimalistic inspirations: that is true, there is no microtonality in this work. It simply would not have been consistent with its overall mood and structure. The…"

Valerio Dalla Ragione replied to Valerio Dalla Ragione's discussion My first symphony
"Hei again Dane! Thank you so much for the feedback. I´m glad that the work´s intro managed to "move on" soon enough not to be boring.
Have a nice weekend Dane Aubrun said:
Hello Valerio,
Well, I listened to the 1st and 2nd movements and there's…"

"Very impressive Valerio, your passion and commitment to the art form are obvious and your skills as well.  I only listened to the first movement due to time constraints but I look forward to hearing the complete work since I enjoyed the first…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Valerio Dalla Ragione's discussion My first symphony
"Hello Valerio,
Well, I listened to the 1st and 2nd movements and there's little to say other than it's accomplished, the orchestration fine, the production excellent and most pleasant to listen to. I felt the 1st movement started to drag a bit…"

"Hi Graeme
Thank you so much for listening and commenting, I'm really glad this work is being appreciated. I will upload the mp3 files later.
It's a funny coincidence that you mentioned Martinu, since I first listened to him just two days ago. I'm…"

Graeme Helliwell replied to Valerio Dalla Ragione's discussion My first symphony
"My first request is for you to repost as 4 mp3 files so that I can listen when I'm out and about. It's a work that clearly requires multiple listening in order to fully appreciate the sheer scale of the piece.
My second request is for you to keep…"

"Hei Michael
Thank you for commenting, I see your thoughts are always valuable and precise.
In order: thanks for the ELP mention. 70s progressive music has always been an inspiration for me (especially Genesis, as one might guess from this sonata's…"

Valerio Dalla Ragione replied to Valerio Dalla Ragione's discussion My first symphony
"Hei Dane
Do you mean into separate videos? Because in fact the symphony is already split into movements (there's four of them, as written in the description), the longest being 16 minutes. I added timestamps in the YouTube video description, so you…"
