Symphony 4 : the river and beyond [eScore] / Don Kay.

Over time, I've come to regard the River Derwent, from my view of
it in Taroona, Tasmania, as a symbol of stability, continuity and
hope. My symphony endeavours to represent, in one movement,
something of those sentiments. The opening, a direct quote from
the 5th and final movement of my River Views, for
trombone and string orchestra (1995), becomes an integral
component of reference.
The digressions, mood changes, moments of climax, ruminations, fantasy and, towards the conclusion, pagan-like celebratory dance to the freedoms nature seems to represent, inevitably return to the ever present permanence of the river, impassive in its tranquility.
