Chamber Symphony No. 5
Chamber Orchestra
8 minutes
Difficulty level: Moderate/Student
I wrote my first Chamber Symphony by accident - a short orchestral piece seemed to require more to be said, then more, and more, till there were four movements. While trying to make a 'symphonic' statement in modern musical language may seem perverse, I feel I have found ways of creating short dramas of sections which carry a musical and dramatic argument through the piece. This Chamber Symphony has three movements, played without a break.
Instrumentation: 1111 1110 percussion, vibraphone, piano, strings There is another version using harp and marimba instead of vibraphone and piano.
