dc.description.abstract Symphonic Overture is a ten minute work for an orchestra consisting of pairs of winds, four horns, two trumpets, three trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion, and strings. The overall structure is ABA', where B starts at the Molto Allegro in measure 76, and A' begins at Tempo I in measure 211. Section A is slow to moderate in tempo, while B is fast and energetic. The piece begins with a dialogue between percussion and strings, with the strings gradually unfolding a twelve note row. The B section contains two new themes, both of which are developed by imitation. The A' section restates the themes of the A section in a varied and fragmented form. These themes appear in the reverse order, giving the whole piece an arch structure. (Abstract shortened with permission of author.)
