Symphony for Orchestra and Two Pianos, Eidelman shares his thoughts on his new large-scale work


About The Work

"I have always been drawn by large-scale emotional romantic symphonies as well as programmatic music. Though this three-movement work does not tell a specific story, with the threat of global warming, as I began to form my initial thematic ideas, I imagined abstract images inspired by the movement of water. The concept of movement then extended to may forms and became a connecting link. I went on an array of different paths including large swirling oceans, unworldly fantasy characters, intimacy of serene water with its beauty and yearnings, soaring skies and fast-paced urban cities. I also reflected on the tension between nature and man and the severity in which we can profoundly influence Earth's balance. As I have always loved music that leaves me with a sense of hope and optimism, I too embraced the path for the ending of this symphony."
