Programme Note:
SYMPHONIC MOVEMENT is one of my symphonic compositions based on the idea of Time and Memories; of Buildup and Loss. The process of Buildup progresses within a long duration of time, while the process of Loss can happen within seconds: One can invest a great amount of energy, wealth, sentiments, and sometimes years to achieve a goal in one’s life, while one can lose everything within seconds, for example, as the result of an earthquake. My composition, generated by a simple but intense theme, gradually advances in a Buildup of more substance and enrichment on all musical levels and parameters, reaching its climax. Then, towards the end, the music suddenly starts fading away. It stops on a whole note in the lowest registers of the orchestra and, then, it continues for a few more bars. At the end, the last two bars are orchestrated for only two pizzicati (Cello) over the long line of the Double Bass and the Tam-Tam, punctuated by two Timpani hits, all in the nuances of piano - pianissimo. This leads to the "al niente" /“Towards the Nothingness” close of the Symphonic Movement, after only four bars of Loss, accomplishing my musical portrayal of the sense of Buildup and Loss.
