    Arrow THE MIRACLE - Symphony Orchestra (Sosnowski)

    The Miracle
    Symphony Orchestra
    David Sosnowski

    To listen:

    Autumn is my favorite time of year, and I usually
    write a brief piece -- as an excuse to escape
    raking leaves, you know. A little late this year...

    Best,



    David

    Hi David,

    nice autumn feelings in the music, and something more a little worrying, that dissolves again later. (...is it the miracle?)

    From a technical point of view I really appreciated the treatment of winds.
    Maybe Strings need a little more care for articulation rendering.

    It's nice for me after a while being back to listening your music.

    all the best,
    Fabio

    Ah, well. Miracles are worrisome things, you know...

    I would agree, Fabio, on the strings. Some of the
    articulations (as scored) don't come through so well
    as I would like. In part, it's Finale's rendering of
    them -- but it is also due to the sound treatment
    I used, I think.

    It's nice for me after a while being back to listening your music.

    all the best,
    Fabio
    Thanks for listening and the kind words, Fabio.

    My best,



    David

    Excellent piece of unboring music, Mister David. I like your frequent use of velvety textures.

    I was captivated from start to finish. Nice one, my Connecticut Yankee friend!

    It's a captivating piece indeed. The string articulations were fine with me; I only found the percussion a bit unnatural, but overall a good sound. I was reminded (again) of Copland, but with a more independent bass line. I like the slow movement that is caused by the overlapping lines of instrument groups. It also leads to a very flowing release of tension and som great orchestration moments (around 2/3). Well done!

    Hi David,

    Listening now --

    I like the way it starts and then builds, then subsides, then builds again and so on. It gives me the feeling of waves on the ocean during this first part.

    I also hear a tenderness in this piece, partly I think in the way the orchestra seems to follow and "support" the flute, and also in the legato and gentle harmonies of the strings.

    A little past halfway, the way the tension builds intrigues me, and then the way it resolves to what feels to me like a clear glassy lake of sound.

    The way you intermix tension, climactic moments and resolutions many times during a piece is something I want to learn from.

    At the end, the way it resolves to that quiet unflamboyant major chord is just beautiful.

    This piece is so lovely, David.

    Happy Thanksgiving, too, to you and yours.

    Warm regards,
    Karen
    A very beautiful piece.

    Isn't this a miracle that one can compose such a nice piece of music? It intruigued me from the very first opening up to the end, wondering about the way it developed from one dramatic accent to the other, filled with motion and emotion.

    This is music!!!

    Bravo David!! I like autumn as well. The coolness, the smells and the color. I think you've captured the essence very well musically.

    Very nice orchestration as usual. Thank you for sharing this gem.
