Symphony No. 1
After about 2 years of writing and testing out various themes for it, I have finally found one I love for my Symphony (specifically, the second movement).
- Attempt #1 (December 2009 to March 2010) - wrote first movement (sonata form), second movement (andante for string quartet), and third movement (scherzo)
- Attempt #2 (September to December, 2010) - wrote two first movements (sonata form) and I like some themes from both, but overall didn't feel they were good enough
- Attempt #3 (August to December 2011) - wrote and developed a few themes, which may or may not be used in this symphony, but most of this time was spent listening to symphonies and teaching myself more advanced theory (using the scores of music by Brahms, Mendelssohn, and Beethoven)
I'm hoping to get this thing completed in spring: I want to see if my college might be interested in performing it... I think they might be. (I mean, how many other college kids write symphonies? lol)
