AbstractSymphony No. 1, "fall with me" is a five-movement work--approximately thirty-five minutes in duration--that explores intramusical thematic relationships through the use of cyclic themes, reminiscence motives, and an adapted version of Igor Stravinsky's "poles of attraction" concept. This is accomplished through a focus on three main musical ideas that form the basis for the entire work, as well as through the utilization of altered traditional forms in each of the movements.The instrumental forces called for in the work are as follows:Winds 18.104.22.168 / Brass 22.214.171.124 / Timp. + 3 perc. / Piano (dbl. Cel.) / Harp / Strings
