    Default Symhony in c-minor

    This is my symphony's 1st movement, written in classical/early Romantic style:

    I. Andante /Allegro con brio ed appassionato (C-Major / c-minor)

    Structure:

    0:01 Andante, a choral, first in solemn C Major by solo horns, later tragically turning into c-minor
    2:55 Allegro con brio ed appassionato, c minor, 6/8, Exposition
    6:12 Development
    8:30 Recapitulation
    11:40 Coda
    13:38 resuming the choral theme
    14:00 Presto.

    It is impressive how you manage to stay out of modern influences. This one is so marvelously old-fashioned and I love it.
    After last post I don't dare to mention any composer influences so I ask instead.
    The more I listened to it, the more I liked it and discovered new aspects and tremendous creativity as well as beauty.
    Well done.

    This is rather lovely. How do you realize the work? Is it just a straightforward MIDI file or do you tweak it a bit with some software other than whatever is playing the MIDI? I ask because it doesn't seem to be quite a s tinny as MIDI usually sounds, and I seem to perceive varying dynamics as well.

    A big applause for you, it's very good and most of all, not just 3 minutes, keep the good work going.

    Dear brianvds, sorry for the late answer ... initially I recorded it with Garritan Personal orchestra but last year I rendered it again technically much improved with NotePerformer. Please listen to it again, (the times mentioned above do not quite fit anymore) ...

    I thought the string writing was impressive personally. I felt some of the melodies/harmony could be fine tuned especially in the winds, and could be better integrated with the string section. But I enjoyed it. It had a lot of forward movement.

    @gprengel this is a marveous work. Your orchestration is very well done. I like your low strings work. Did you finish any other movements?

    Through the most helpful hints from Adrien, I think, I could improve the sound of my symphony considerably by using the Fabilter plugin for Finale. So I could create more space by putting the wind instruments into the back of the orchestra. Thank you, Adrien!
