Phantasmagoric Radiance, for orchestra (2018) – 3'

Phantasmagoric Radiance is constantly in flux, with harmonies transforming into each other and the orchestration shifting among sections and registers. Melodies leave echoing trails, while incisive chords burst from different parts of the ensemble. Throughout the piece, one melody develops into both broader and faster versions of itself, with the versions converging around the original at the end.

The instrumentation is - - timp; 2 perc. - strings.
