for Symphony Orchestra
Upon completion of his formal musical training, Matt’s orchestral “Melrose Overture” marked a new, exciting level of maturity and creativity in his journey as a composer. The recording’s cover graphic highlights the work’s rhythmic motif.
This energetic orchestral piece wraps different melodic “movements” into a singular work.
The music opens with an explosive high-A from all three trumpets. A bombastic timpani solo takes over, followed by a single trumpet’s presentation of the melodic motif, which is answered by the full orchestra. Solos are plentiful throughout, including a virtuosic cadenza by the concertmaster. Slower lyrical themes are balanced with those featuring more rhythmical challenges. The conclusion builds harmonic dissonance between the instruments, until a unifying final chord.
Matt offers his original music with no expectation of payment. The above audio files and musical scores are absolutely FREE for your personal use and enjoyment.
