The Millennium Suite is a contemporary large symphonic work in three contrasting movements. The piece begins with the triumphantly bold Festival Fanfare commanding immediate attention with its 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, colourful Scherzo. This movement adds zest and sparkle through its spritely use of canon and counterpoint on a fast-paced melodic and rhythmic chase around the orchestra! Also available for String Orchestra, Piano and Orchestral Percussion.
