Symphony N° 3 in G moll "Hellenic". 1) moderato 2) Largo 3) Intermezzo 4) Santorini 5) Finale.
The Symphony calls "Hellenic" because it is an imaginary description of the islands in the Aegean sea. In the second movement the wind of the east brings a frigius theme exposed by the first violin and then for the winds. Toward the
end, from the fund of forest the flute of the God Pan is heard that it plays again in the silence of the twilight. In the Intermezzo there is the trip toward the Islands Cicladi it dipped in the light of midday. In the fourth movement he reaches Santorini where to a typical folk theme is listened exposed by the winds together with the buzuky. Very difficult the parts of the woodwinds and the brasses; the symphony won't be to ever populate because of the complexity of a good execution, but it works well musically even if the style is absolutely traditional. Written in a difficult moment of my life, it is a sort of ideal trip toward beaches milder.
