Product details

The dictionary describes a Rhapsody as an enthusiastic, ecstatic, or extravagant utterance or composition. A piece of music in one extended movement, usually emotional in character. In writing this piece I felt that all of these descriptions applied, and composing a symphony in this day and age is a pretty extravagant gesture in itself. In terms of language it is essentially "neo-romantic" in style and follows the typical symphonic construction of "sonata" form. Two of the main themes share the same "motive" (a drop of a 7th) and some material utilises the "whole tone" scale but with underlying diatonic harmony.
