Wonderful work! I love the sober melancholy throughout, similar in vein to the 2nd movement of Paganini's First Concerto.

A quibble: I don't know if the voicing of the deceptive cadence in bars 15-16, especially in 2nd Violin, is totally correct: I usually realize it raising the two leading tones (bass and 7th degree) and moving down the two parts, resulting in a final triad with the doubling of the 3rd. Something like this:

Obviously it's a very minor thing and I loved the movement: I'm going to listen to the rest of the Symphony as soon as possible!

Hi!
My name is Emiliano, I'm 25 year old and I'm from Rome.
I'm completing my studies in ET Engineering and (most importantly) studying Piano Performance in the Santa Cecilia Conservatory in Rome.
I composed music from the beginning of my piano studies (I'd even say before) but only at a self-taught level until now.

and this is why I make VERY liberal use of cue notes in my parts.

Completed Works: Junior / Sarabande (Classical Symphony 2nd movement)
« Last post by whitebark on July 16, 2018, 07:29:01 PM »
This second movement of my Classical Symphony borrows the idea of a slow, melancholy Sarabande from Britten's Simple Symphony - a slow, stately dance in 3/4 time. There's little in the way of modernism in this movement.  It is rather serious throughout, unlike the other movements.  The cellos introduce the main melody ala Brahms.

Well, this completes the reworking of all of the Classical Symphony movements, except for the addition of an extended fugue in the last movement, something that Michel suggested.  Perhaps, I will take that fugue project up in the future. For your listening pleasure, I combined all of the movements into one big mp3 file, so you can listen to the whole 22 minute work uninterrupted:

Interesting article I attached. When I lived in Wakefield 14+ years ago Carol Wiebe played a couple of my works in a concert. I had no idea she was an MD. I just knew her as a pianist.
