Description

Symphony No. 1, Millennium Voyage by Daniel
Perlongo is in five continuous movements.

1) Harbor Entrance, Moderately slow,
begins with a distant timpani and high muted violins. Fragmentary lines
participate in a rather stately, transparent texture as an introduction to this
internal voyage.

In 2) Island Walk, Calmly and deliberate, the flute, violin,
and piccolo respond antiphonally to each other, and with a layering of
ostinati, form a background for the viola solo.

3) Sunny Diversion, Fast, with
drive, grows out of the bassoon, clarinet and woodwind lines, resembling a
fugal exposition. A full orchestral fabric is gradually created by attenuating,
coloring, and extending those beginning gestures. This builds to arrivals
heralded by trumpet and timpani sounds that gradually fade into

4) Hidden
Jewel, Flowing and expressive, introduced by gong and bell.

5) Wind Play, Fast,
with drive, takes up the woodwind theme from Sunny Diversion and fulfills its
developmental promise – it sings, dances and celebrates in sound this imaginary
voyage into the new millennium.
