    Delusions of Grandeur (Symphony No. 4 in Ab major)

    Starting the year off with a flare. Excerpts from Movement 1 for my Symphony No. 4 in Ab Major.

    and here's the score if anyone is interested. I don't claim to be an expert at scoring so if you have any suggestions on improving this please feel free to add your expertise.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks,

    Dear Mitch,

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful symphony with us here at the forum! I admire the classical kind of style that you composed it in, and the orchestrations and melodic material kept me listening, and i definitely had a fun time doing it! Please do not worry about your scoring, you got the hang of it!
    Again, thank you for sharing! I do really hope to hear the other movements sometime!

    Sincerely,
    Quinn M.

    Very elegant and a great representation of the classical style.

    Wow, Mitch, a couple of hundred years ago, you certainly would have been hired by the Esterhazys to compete with Haydn (since the latter didn't use the brass so effectively as you do for a change). Pure and classical. I love the orchestral transparent sound. Nice work!

    Hi Mitch,

    I listened to this in the afternoon and WOW, just tremendous! I really liked it, especially the very beginning. I loved the way you emphatically get the whole work moving right from the downbeat. Such exciting, well structured music ... great job!

    Frank

    (And many thanks for the score ... so much to study and learn from!)

    And that is a big understatement, Mitch! My word this is wonderful. It's a very nice rendering of even better music. Frankly, I'm in awe of your accomplishment with this. Very shortly after pushing "play," the only choice I had was to sit back and let your music wash over me. Brilliant.
