5th instalment of 1st movement
Still in lockdown which is allowing me to be musically productive. As well as continuing with the Jami I have been working on the typesetting of Havegal Brian’s 3rd Symphony. That would be considered something of a symphonic beast if it wasn’t compared to the Jami and still acts as light relief compared to Sorabji.
I’ve now completed 54 minutes of the 1st movement and heres a couple of extracts. There’s quite a bit of solo violin in this chunk some of which isn’t explicitly marked solo some of which is. It made me think that there is no explicit solo passage for cello or viola in the whole symphony. The organ appears for two bars in this video and gardly appears at all in this movement whilst it appears quite a lot in the third.
The video inlcudes a description of the music.
