MINI-SCORE
Many people in my area thought that after the birth of my daughter I would rather write music that is more cheerful than that I have written before. However, a particular music has been created that is even darker than the 1.Sinfonie, especially the all-pervasive darkness of the first sentence stands out. The birth of my daughter had blessed me with incredible luck and subjected me an almost exuberant admiration whether if this was a miracle. But at the same time, also fears emerged in me which I could or allow to hide. This feeling was created by becoming aware of the responsibility of receiving a child, over filled me with the awareness of the circumstances that would bring the survival of existence which would come in a somewhat very difficult world. That's why I used the third and fourth sets of the text from a Middle aged Polish song, its validity even in today's time is right. It is about a mother who loses her son and does not know if he's alive or above, if he is buried somewhere or maybe killed in action by enemies. I have composed the 2nd Symphony with two main themes which pervade throughout the piece. The subject at the beginning of the horns (fate) and the once -onset major topic (fear) in the tenor register. When I heard this symphony for the first time outside of my head, my music had touched me again. It reflects my inner self. This symphony I have dedicated to my friend Henrie Adams.
