I searched a challenge as musician. I thought: “One day I dream of writing a symphony”.
I wanted so much to write a symphony or one suite containing elements of my culture, of my region.
So, everything that surrounds me directed so that this could happen, but I did not know how nor for where to start.
Certain day, after I baptized some brothers, in the mansion of friends in the Crato - CE, Brazil, observing the fascinating landscape, having as background the Mountain of Araripe.
Then it came into me this thought:
“What a nice landscape”! “What a beautiful symphony”! This I thought because its multivales, hillsides and mounts had made me to imagine as if melodies were springing from its valley, echoing in my soul, sounding as staves of a symphony distilling.
Then, when I returned my home, I sat down front of my PC, run Sibelius 3,0 and I started to write thouse sounds resounding in my mind.
Note: I do not play any instrument, but I only use the PC’s keyboard and musical notation to write.
Then firstly it had come the eighth movement.
After that, it came, each by one, the others movements, from the first over the seventh and I felt that the symphony was concluded.
I hope you may enjoy that I tried to express through each movement.
