View Full Version : Major Symphonic Work: Progress Log... (English)

Frederik Magle
Feb-15-2004, 02:03
Very soon, I will be able to reveal all details about the major symphonic work I have been working on for almost a year now (and which have been a secret until now). The first movement (which takes about 15 minutes) will be given it's premier performance this summer (2004), and the complete work (5 movements - lenght about 50 minutes) will be performed in 2005. It is, by far, the largest project I have ever undertaken!

The Orchestra:

3 flutes
2 oboes
3 clarinets in b
1 bass-clarinet
2 bassoons
1 double-bassoon
4 horns in F
3 trumpets (b)
3 trombones
1 tuba
3 percussionists
soprano vocal soloist
bass vocal soloist
chorus (mixed: SSAATTBB)
full strings (Violins I & II, Violas, Celli, Dbl.basses)

As you can see it's a quite large scale orchestra, and with additional soloists and choir - when finished - it will be one of the largest danish symphonic works written in many years!

The deadline for the work is in the middle of March (a month from now) and I will keep you posted on the progress and news about the first performance

If you have any questions about this project, feel free to ask them here in this "thread" (you must be logged in first) and I will do what I can to answer them if possible.

[Note: Some of the breaking-news info will be posted in the "members only" section first, before being added to this log or even being announced in public medias (newspapers, television etc.)! Yet another good reason to join this forum... https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif]

Det kan jo kun blive er fantastisk værk https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
Det bliver spændene at følge med i udviklingen det næste år.

Frederik, I wish you ALL THE BEST in your process of completing your major symphonic work! And looking very much forward to hear the results!! https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif I'm very sure it will be worth all the hard work you're investing in it now!

som de andre... jeg synes også det lyder spændende... - og håber at du får kreeret noget godt i sidste ende... jeg er dog ikke helt sikker på jeg forstår det store "mysterie"/hemmelighedskræmmeri og alt den "hush-hush" der er omkring denne komposition... men tja... det kan jo være det kommer senere... https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Thanks for all the support, Nalia, Trebbien and Corno!

Corno asked about all the secrecy surrounding the piece. Well, I can tell you that eveything will be revealed in a few weeks (maybe even sooner), but until then I have promised the people who have commisioned the piece to keep the details about the work (other than what I have already written in this thread) and the first performance confidential.

Feb-18-2004, 11:39
https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gifYeah Frederik.!!!!! I sincerely wish you all the best with this "symphonic" work.The orchestration line up looks massive & glad it is you and not me.Look forward to getting the "Progress Logs". I am sure it will be a Great Work.!!!! https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cheers444.gif

Time has come to reveal the "secret" in public:

On June 10th, 2004, at 19:00 hours there will be a gala/festival-concert in celebration of the 70th Birthday of Henrik, His Royal Highness The Prince Consort! The programme will consist of works by Maurice Ravel, Nies. W. Gade, Carl Nielsen, Giachino Rossini and Frederik Magle...

The concert takes place in Tivoli's Concert Hall (Copenhagen, Denmark) and the performers are The Danish National Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Danish National Radio Choir (Conducted by the Conductor-in-Chief Thomas Dausgaard), the Copenhagen Royal Chapel Choir (Conducted by Ebbe Munk) and the soloists; Sine Bundgaard (soprano), Gert Henning Jense (tenor) and Bo Anker Hansen (bass/barytone).

This will be the first performance (of the first movement) of my symphonic work "Cantabile". The whole work consists of five movements or "symphonic poems" based on HRH Prince Henrik's collection of poems, "Cantabile". The work has been comissioned by the Danish Royal Family and is sponsered by the Royal Family and the Spies Foundation.

There will be public access to the concert and tickets can be bought through, amongst other places, Tivoli's ticket agency, but expect it to be sold out quickly!

https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gifWell Frederik....All I can say is "Congratulations" https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
and what a Wonderful Commission!!!....and wish You all the best with this,the first movement,and the rest of the work.
Cheers https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cheers444.gif Pamadu/Paul.
P.S. THIS IS A GREAT HONOUR to work from The Prince Consort's OWN Poems.and THIS Commissioned work will go down in the History Books as well as All Music Libraries etc.
Really Great.!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so Pleased for You. https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

UPDATE 19-03-2004

I'm working intensely to put the finishing touch on this work, so I will not be present at this forum very much the next couple of days. I will return with a new update when the work is finished.

Mar-19-2004, 17:34
Exciting news indeed https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif!
(Don't forget to eat and sleep while you're working concentrated on your major symphonic work https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif)

I personally look very much forward to hear the result (one can only speak for her self...) https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif I'm sure all the hard work and efforts will be worth it!

https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif Trebbien

Mar-20-2004, 01:02
I'm just going to agree with Trebbien https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif - looking forward to see and hear the final result... and if exams are not to heavy a burden in June I might just pop by Tivoli (not that an invitation would hurt https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif hehe) https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Mar-21-2004, 02:27
just one little suggestion... use horns... and use a lot of them... all the time... https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif hehe... - there can't be too many of them in a piece and eventually they do have to play more than the few notes that they are used to in any given pre-romantic orchestral work... so... a lot of horns... https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Mar-27-2004, 05:32
https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gifI think it was the Pope who Kept going into St.Peter's Basillica and annoying Leonardo with his Painting/Fresco,always calling out..."when will it be finished.!!!!!.." The point of this post is:
Are You still alive.????? When will it be finished.?????
How is it going.????? Just One Word...would put ALL our Minds to rest. Cheers https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cheers444.gifPamadu/Paul.
Just Hope you Have Not made yourself Ill over this deadline.
Perhaps you ARE putting in More "Horn Parts" as Corno suggested.(Strange that....How the Horn line always plays only a few notes.).So Yes.!!!!! More Horns and Flutes as well. https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Mar-28-2004, 00:01
yeah mr. F... https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif - what's happenin' https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smash.gif https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smash.gif

Mar-28-2004, 02:21
https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gifIn answer to that Thomas. when i went into the "Royal Australian Navy Band". I was a Pianist/Organist. Now they had to find me something I could "March" with and "Carry" https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif so.!!!!!! I pretended to play the Flute & Piccolo and did continue it on.....those stinky flutes hehehe. https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
Yes Nalia....More Sopranos or the "Goth-Opera" guy may pinch them as well as the violinists.
He will announce something soon.....I just feel it coming. https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cheers444.gif Paul.

Apr-01-2004, 10:27
https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/whistling2.gif We Wait in Great Anticipation. Must be the extra "Horn/Soprano/Flute" lines that are holding things up. https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif I am sure it will be worth it https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cheers444.gif

Thanks! https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Our very own Captain Corno (a.k.a. Thomas Nielsen), have done the transfer from my main music application "Logic" into the professional score-layout application "Finale", from which the individual voices and the full score will be printed. Logic is an excellent tool during the composition process but for professional print, Finale is the best, and there have been no compromises in this work. Thomas has also been reading first proof. Today I read second proof. Tomorrow I will read the third and final proof when I get the score back from "Samfundet" (http://www.samfundet.dk/) - who will be printing the full score and voices.

Here is a small excerpt (page 27) of the work (click on "attachment" to view in full size):

Apr-11-2004, 12:36
Late last night, Saturday, I finished making the "piano score" - a transcription of the complete work for piano, very useful (necessary) for the soloists and chorus during studying and rehearsals.

During the week I have also done the final proof-reading on the orchestral score. Now, I'll be doing proof-reading on the orchestral and vocal parts when they come back from the score-writers. But basically my work on the first movement is finished now! Finally! https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Today the 21th of April, 2004. This morning at 11:30, I returned the very last of my corrections on the individual orchestral parts to "Samfundet" (the score writers) who will print them out and send them to the orchestra within the next few days. All my work on the 1st movemenet of "Cantabile" is now done...for real! https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Apr-24-2004, 13:25
I really do not know where to Post this...The Danish Section has it all in FULL..But the English sends you to this Thread. MY QUESTION IS: Does this MEAN YES or NO to a Radio/TV Broadcast of the Work Please:

Det kunne vel også tænkes at radioen sender lidt derfra? Jeg vil have bånd klar til at optage både TV og radio fra koncerten, også p.g.a. mine venner på Djursland, som jo er levende interesserede, men ikke har PC eller video. Stor hilsen også fra dem (Solveig og Svend Bilde).Knus Grete.

Many Thanks. https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cheers444.gif Cheers Pamadu/Paul.

Apr-24-2004, 14:22
Hi Paul/Pamadu,

It's not a yes or no to your question about Radio/TV Broadcast, but a question about the same.... and don't worry, I'm sure Frederik will tell us, both in english and danish, when he knows... https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Apr-24-2004, 14:42
That's right. As soon as I have a confirmation about a TV broadcast, I will post it here. Right now I'm 90% sure it will be broadcasted, but things can change. I need to be 100% sure before I start advertising it. IF there is a TV broadcast it will be on either DR1 or DR2.

Apr-24-2004, 15:00
https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gifAHHHHH That is Good. Thanks. We have 367 Channels on Sattelite TV out here where we live....Jamie has just found the Danish ones.(DR1 & DR2).The Radio we pick up on The PC.....But we will wait to hear from You 100%.....
Cheers https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cheers444.gif Pamadu/Paul
P.S. If not Trebbien You will have to "sneek" in a little Mini recorder in to the concert. hehehehehehehe https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Apr-25-2004, 11:42
https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gifwe have DR1 & DR2 all tuned in and also the radio.
so we now wait for the news and also check the progam section. https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/up.gif https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/up.gif https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/up.gif Jamie

If someone can record the show on tape and send it to me that would be great.

I know Europe is on PAL system while Canada uses NTSC 3.58. I still will take it https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif I know a lot of people can do system conversion for free.

So far, everything is going fine. The rehearsals haven't started yet, but I'll have a meeting with the conductor next week just prior to the rehearsals.

I'm spending the waiting time working on the next movement...

Update: The concert will be broadcasted live on danish radio P2 and send on DR1 TV later on the evening starting at 23:15 (11.15PM Danish Time)

May-29-2004, 20:10
jeg vil side ved højtalerens side først på aftenen og senere klinet fast foran skærmen. Glæder mig meget til at høre det hele Frederik. sig nu til i god tid inden uropføerelsen af hele værket, så man kan være der live. Ville jo også være fedt hvis jeg sad i orkesteret...
Er der Radioen der skal uropføre det hele i 2005?
der er jo en stilling ledig med konkurrence i oktober, så måske sidder jeg der og spiller til næste år...


May-29-2004, 21:30
der er da også en stilling ledig - med konkurrence i morgen... https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif - men 4. horn er måske ikke så tiltalende? https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Og ja... det skal nok blive en spændende koncert på næste torsdag... - nu skal man jo bare finde ud af hvad man skal tage på... man er jo ikke ligefrem blevet inviteret af Prinsen... men det lyder jo til at være en ganske fancy sag. https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

May-31-2004, 23:02
jeg har aldrig været god i dybden, jeg har altid haft problemer med at spille de svære sager dernede - så direkte at tro jeg ville kunne vinde 4. hornspladsen ville nok være utopi. Desuden var der heller ingen der fik den - så jeg kan jo melde mig til omkampen når den kommer engang.

Tonight is the big night and I just want to say thank you for all the support and interest I have recieved from you, the members of MIMF.dk!

I have not been so active in here for the last couple of weeks, but hope to back in a few days, when things have settled a little.

The rehearsals have gone well, and even though I definitely would have liked some more time for rehearsals (there has only been 60 minutes in total with choir, soloists and orchestra!), I am looking much forward to the concert in just 3 1/2 hours. The musicians, singers and conductor are excellent - some of the very best in Denmark.

I will try to post links to internet-streams of my music if possible.

Aug-03-2004, 08:48
I don't know if this post came too late or not. But GOOD LUCK! https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/up.gif

Not too late at all. He still has the last 3 movements to finish https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Hi Gareth, It is possible to download excerpts from the first performance here (http://www.magle.dk/music-forums/360-symphonic-poem-cantabile-mp3.html).
However, I've also sent you a private message with access to the full 1st movement, which is not available to the public.

Kind regards https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
