    Symphony No 2 II Andante lamentoso

    I just finished now also the 2nd movement of my 2nd symphony, a lamenting Andante which eventually resolves to redeeming and bright ending. I love it very much:

    Gerd,

    Your Andante sounds like very nice work to me. The motifs are great and so is the development. It’s pleasing to the heart.

    Quite a refreshing piece, nice dynamics/transitions/sections morphing into something different. All with a stately quality to it

    Hi Gerd,

    With great interest I've listened to your Andante lamentoso. It's so full of brilliant ideas and turns, rich with contrasts (both instrumental and emotional) and very well orchestrated. I especially like the rather 'dark' middle part' and the final. Such a pity that the final strings only occur once, at the end. They could add a lot of inner tension in other sections too. The first cello part should be a solo cello (in my opinion) (trio with oboe, clarinet and solo cello). The cello should play a more active counterpoint role as well. It doesn't offer any real answer to the beautiful oboe theme...

    But as a whole, I like the piece very much! Congrats!

    It will be only me who will encourage you to use a little more revorb, because most people look down on this. You came a long way in orchestration since you joined us. I LOVE your ending of your piece especially.
