Symphony No. 1 Second Movement Progress

I made significant progress over the last three days in the second movement, and yesterday I finally plotted out the full timeline for the second movement. When complete, I think it will be around 20 minutes long! It sounds lovely so far, and to complete the idea, I need about 20 minutes. Does that seem too much?

It’s fascinating to switch between a focus on measure by measure how the piece should sound and then to pull back and focus on the entire movement and how it should sound. I love doing this. Something about it brings me great satisfaction. I should have done this long ago, but maybe I honestly could not have done it years ago. Either way, it’s working well now, and I hope I can get this completed and then find some orchestra willing to play it for an audience.
