Probably my darkest work yet
« on: January 23, 2022, 05:40:18 PM »
This is the ending of what is probably my darkest work.  Loud music warning.  It is a 25 minute symphonic poem.  Sort of like Tchaikovsky's Francesca da Rimini but without the romantic music.

The general idea was composed in 2011.  I revised it in 2015 to a complete work but revisioned it just now in 2022 to this current form which is how I imagined it back in 2011.  It is very loud and very dark.  Definitely not for everyone.

Turbulent indeed, and so atmospheric too. Man, this is loud!!! I must say I really liked this. Thanks for sharing.

Have you ever tried the option of composing a symphony of a considerable ambition? I'm quite sure you can create works like that.

Congratulations, and thanks for sharing your talent with us!

Thank you!  I posted excerpts of my Symphony No. 1 and No. 4 here.  but not the entire works because I'm not that great at mock ups.

IOW, sort of like Tchaikovsky but not Tchaikovsky at all.  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
