The Millennium Suite is a contemporary symphonic work in three contrasting movements for Full Orchestra, Organ, Harpsichord (or Keyboard substitutes) and Orchestral Percussion. The piece begins with the triumphantly bold Festival Fanfare commanding immediate attention with memorable melodic lines and complex harmonic layers. The second movement is a beautiful, yet rousing Anthem laced with emotive themes and warm dissonance. Finally, we are introduced to movement three which is a playful, colorful Scherzo. This movement adds zest and sparkle through spritely use of canon and counterpoint on a fast-paced melodic and rhythmic ‘chase’ around the orchestra!
Also available for String Orchestra, Piano & Orchestral Percussion.
