Symphony No. 1 Work in Progress
I finally broke through the challenging 2nd movement of my symphony. It has been hard to get the beginning portion of the 2nd movement flowing just right, something always felt missing, but I think I finally got the sound I was looking for. Now to the hard work of filling it all in. It’s a lovely movement. I know my wife won’t like it, because it has a lot of bombastic dynamics to very peaceful, quiet periods, and she’s not a big fan of that.
I have a goal of completing all four movements by June 2019, one year to the month when I began the symphony. I’m a bit behind, figuring I’d be working on the third movement by this point, but thankfully the third movement will probably be the easiest and I already have a good form for it and several minutes of ideas already laid.
