Opus 220

Chamber Symphony No. 11 in D

This work was begun on my return trip from Orlando Florida, in December of 2014. On January 12, 2016 a simple fix completed the work.

This work is scores for: flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, trumpet, horn, piano, one percussionist and strings.

It is in five movements:

I. Moderato
II. Grounding
III. Like a menuetto
IV. "A crossing of Timelines"
V. Finale Moderato

January 12, 2016 I split the first movement which I wrote more with the idea of writing a complete one-movement work in three parts. creating the odd number movements (I, III & V) so there is quite a similarity between these parts.

The grounding movement quotes Bach with the final theme presented as a ground in the piano.

The fourth movement was written as sort of a theme and variations or just variations. This work was one of my main emphasis' this last summer when I was in Grass Valley. I the early mornings I would go down to Gold Discovery Park. To the pick-nick tables by the river and work on this. I finally completed this movement while with Oscar at Mission Ridge Sky resort on December 31st, 2015.

I have been anxious to move on to music for the Wizard of OZ films and my Eb Symphony; now I can.

“This CD proves that what may have sounded weird sixty years ago now sounds normal and often beautiful.”

There are many lesser-known 20th century composers, who have great worth!

Let’s not forget the music of:
Wendell Otey
Alan Hovhaness
Henry Cowell
Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco
Gunther Schuller.
