dc.description.abstract Symphony No. 2 “The Great Expanse†is a 20-minute composition commissioned by the California Youth Symphony in 2016. The title of the work serves as a reference to its: 1) initial musical inspiration -- drawing on expanding and contracting interval sets; 2) construction of these sets around the expanse of the composer’s instrument, the piano; 3) metaphorical place in the composer’s ouvre – that this second symphony is an expansion of the composer’s abilities since his first symphony as a Bachelor’s student; and 4) programmatic elements dealing with the expanse of time, space and the unknown. The construction of this piece deals with many pre-compositional techniques, all of which aim to relate elements of pitch, rhythm, phrasing, and form simultaneously to the concepts of expansion and contraction. The result of that preplanning manifested itself in a two movement work (I. …of dark; and II. …of light), which is highly structured and deeply personal to the composer. en_US
