Serialism Suite 1 for Orchestra


Serialism Suite 1 for Orchestra.

Wrote this for my course using early serialism techniques, my prime tone row is:

Bb, D, E, G, C#, C, A, F#, F, G#, Eb, B.

I used my tone row to determine only the pitch order i would use. The rhythm, dynamics, timbre and which row i would use when was chose at my own accord.
This was written for orchestra; Piccolo, Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, Horn, 2 Trumpets in Bb, Violin, Violas, Cellos, Bass, Contrabass, Timpani, Triangle, Gong and Bass Drum.
