Out of Strife (Comes Hope)

Uploaded on Jun 21, 2016

This march resembles Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance marches. IMO, this resembles his 3rd Pomp and Circumstance march the most--both are in minor keys, start quietly, quote their march propers' first themes loudly, and have trios that appear second in their tonic majors. But where Elgar's 3rd Pomp and Circumstance march turns around, heads back to its minor home key, and ends in fury, my march ends victoriously (if not without some pollution) in the tonic major key.

I composed the entire melody of this march years ago and fleshed out the rest of this piano version this year. I do want to make an orchestral arrangement of this someday...but if you can pull one off, I'd love to hear it!

...Yeah, I have a tendency to write very long codas. I've been working hard on shortening them lately.
