    Suite for Orchestra

    Well, here it is. All 3 movements of my Suite for Orchestra based on the novel: The Search Beyond Tomorrow.

    I hope you all enjoy the orchestral journey.

    Good job on this, William -- a worthwhile and interesting suite.

    I enjoyed listening to this.

    I'm not familiar with this novel... what is the story behind it?

    Story of the novel (in short) The Reach Beyond Tomorrow

    A race discovers that it's sun will go supernova. They must venture out into the void in search of a new home, or perish on their planet of origin. They discover a new planet and begin the process of rebuilding their race.

    Now that's a novel in a nutshell.

    Each movement reflects the ideas in the above syllabus:

    I - Impending Doom
    II - The Journey
    III - A New Start

    If you want to read the novel, you'll have to wait until the writer has finished it (me). I found it easier to write the music, than to write the book which is only about 1/3 completed.

    Ah, yes, now I remember -- you have mentioned this before. For some reason, I had mistakenly gotten Robert Sheckley's classic Journey Beyond Tomorrow stuck in my head -- which takes place after the world has "ended".
