As already mentioned, it takes some effort and concentration to properly enjoy it... but, yes, it has been absolutely worth to: rich, complex work, very balanced and God knows how difficult it has to be to keep balance with a work of this size.

    Always a pleasure to listen to your music.

    Thanks for the nice words, Kjell. I do not actually think I ever 'criticize' anything. I can express my opinion on a certain issue, but I always stress that I express nothing else than that.. just my humble opinion. I do not think I know anything more than any of you guys, to be able to isolate possible 'faults' in your works. Plus...there are many different points of views, rarely absolute truths.
    I enjoy being part of a community concerning music because I think of this as a place we can talk about a topic which is dear to us all and possibly socialize and joke a bit.

    Looking forward to listening to your music again.

    At last, some very good massage for my ears. Nicely done. The brass is really a topic for me. Maybe on some occasions an outburst of joy with those brass instruments (as at about 10 minutes, but then brass only!!), you know what I mean. There was a lot of work involved, I know. Really enjoyable. And never again tell us that you live in a country between Sibelius and Grieg. You have some guys to be proud of, like Wilhelm Stenhammar. You are too modest (haha).

    Greetings,

    Thanks for feedback, Raymond. And Stenhammar, yes I had almost forgot him although my son was singing a choir song by him on our national day recently so I promise...

    Hi Kjell,

    With growing admiration I listened to your Symphonic Poem. You've put down a very nice symfonie structure both in orchestration as in thematic material. Very interesting are the horn passages, where the instrument gets a very melodic prominent role. I do realise what a tough job it is to have such an extensive work sound right. And you managed to do so, all over the almost 16 minutes.
    It requires for a lot of forum members a firm dosis of courage (and patience) to listen to a work of that length, but it is certainly worth the while. As Raymond says: At last, some very good massage for my ears. Nicely done. This is one of the top compositions on this forum with a daring length, content and orchestral grandeur.
    Very nice overall sound as well!

    Thanks for sharing,
    Max
