Since July 2020 I have been composing a classical „symphonic sketch“ in the form of a sonata. The instrumentation is symphonic (string ensemble and solo, woodwind ensemble and solo, brass, piano, some percussion).

The musical moods move from heroically moved to exhilarated and joyful to epic and melancholy. The symphomic sketch contains 5 pieces with two classic main themes: introduction, exposition, development, recapitulation, coda as well as various transitions. Musically, it is based on classical composers, but also contains modern elements.
