Just to prove I do more than just post (and complain) about all the bugs lately... I do actually compose... :mrgreen:
I would like to share this movement from my 7th symphony, started in May. I completed this today. Still waiting for the inspiration for a big final (4th) movement....
I hope you'll enjoy it.

A solidly developed movement! Nice ideas to listen to with excellent transitions...a delight for the listener because it is so well crafted.
This movement is a tough act to follow, but you've got what it takes!

Great stuff Pete - I really enjoyed listening to this - lots of interesting ideas with well managed transitions.
I only wondered a bit about the passage between 2:49 and 3:55 where the F Horn tune is great but the the underlying strings are a little un-interesting - maybe throw in a few dotted rhythms perhaps?? - just my 2 penneth.
Look forward to hearing the final movement.
Cheers
David

Now we are talking about the nitty-gritty, huh?? :)
I'm sure, before completing the entire work, that there will be "tweaks". Thanks for your comments and thank you for listening seriously.

A "scherzo" in A-B-A form, composed in "standard" diatonic idiom. The main theme in the "A" sections has a sort of "Scottish snap" and is catchy. Very effective use of the triangle in the recap. As to crossbow's suggestion about varying the string figures under the horn and oboe themes, I understand his point but before making a change I would analyze the material to make sure the accompaniment does not duplicate a rhythmic pattern in the melody (it needs to contrast with it). The melody in this "B" section also has instances of the "snap" picked up from the "A" section.

Thank you for the synopsis, Doc!
It is always interesting to see another listener's (or composers) take on something. The underlying strings in that slower release section (at around 3:40 which I believe is what "Crossbow" referred to) are just triplets in 4/4 and they contrast with the dotted french horn theme, purposely giving a calming and less busy feel to that section.

I am curious (off the subject totally) to hear how other composers, specifically you who have had orchestral works performed or hoping to do so, are handling our current crisis. I, for one, have put much time and energy in trying to promote my symphonic works and had some good fortune over the years. But now, orchestras can't even assemble to do a performance, are really having financial struggles on top of their already challenging existences. Maybe not the biggies like Berlin , N.Y, or LA philharmonics, but certainly the smaller professional ones that take on composers like me.
When will the dream of having a large work performed even be one worth pursuing again? :cry: It is emotionally challenging to contemplate a world without live orchestras, or new works....
