Like Borodin On Acid

in Featured, Orchestral by on April 29th, 2009

Alexander Borodin

Had my symphony described to me as being “like Borodin on acid.”  “What was that?  It was like Borodin on acid.” I like that.  Who wouldn’t like that?

Acid

A chemical which, if ingested by Borodin's music, could conceivably alter said music in such a manner that it thereafter sounded something like my symphony, according to the referenced source.

Symphony #1 Completed

in Featured, Music, Orchestral by on January 15th, 2009

Strongly emotive full-scale symphonic work in 5 movements, 61 mins.:

  1. Movt. 1: Largo lacrimoso
  2. Movt. 2: Scherzando – Presto agitato con fuoco
  3. Movt. 3: Andante cantibile – Allegro
  4. Movt. 4: Scherzo
  5. Movt 5: Adagio grandioso – Andante luttoso – Allegro con brio

The symphony is on a grand scale, more than leaning toward the heroic, featuring enlarged percussion and brass sections and piano.

The Scherzo is the symphony’s light comic relief, and can function by itself as a standalone piece.  Hear it below (two other clips can be heard here and here):
