Hi Pavel, I listened to the 1st 6 1/2 minutes of your symphony... very impressive.

I'll hear more when I can. I can tell you are a serious student of this art and I really

 liked what I've heard. I believe you will do very well with composing. From what I

heard in this work , you have what it takes.  Excellent job... your 1st huh    RS

Pavel, I listened to the scherzo. It reminded me of Shostakovich in its frenetic energy. Yes, this was the light-hearted dessert I craved after hearing your symphony. As for influences (on your symphony), someone pointed-out Mahler. Parts of it reminded me of Sibelius, especially the begining, and some of the harmonic language. I'll definitely be checking out more of your music. By the way, that orchestra is pretty damn good, to say the least!

Haunting, mystical music, monumental in scope, stunning in conception. amazing command of the orchestra, and all aspects of composition. I'm looking forward to hearing more of your music, Pavel, especially any pieces you may have done that are on the lighter side. I say this because, although this Symphony is a great achievment, it is so dramatic and intense that it creates a desire for something more human, more approachable. Here you give us the Eternal. What have you done that gives us the present moment?
