Symphony in C

First Symphony

ByAndrew Feazelle

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Andrew Feazelle’s First Symphony, written in the years 2011 and 2012, is the composer’s most extensive and complicated orchestral work to date, though perhaps not as mature as his latter symphonies. Motif driven, polyphonically complex, and a study on the balanced contrasting of triplet based information against that derived from regular metric divisions, the symphony offers a fair measure of stylistic purity regarding the composer’s study of Arnold Bax and Ralph Vaughan Williams. Like all the Feazelle symphonies, three movements, as opposed to four, comprise the totality of the work - a tribute to Bax - however, in acknowledgement of the ghosted triple meter movement, several sections throughout the work are primarily triplet focused; this confounding the architecture of the form, lending to its sprawling and programmatic nature. The composer had originally not planned to release the work in its entirety until he revised the first movement, but the Covid-19 pandemic afforded him time to prepare parts for the other two movements - a task he had failed to accomplish a decade ago - allowing him a new found appreciation for such, and thusly it seemed natural to do so.
