“Quasi una sonata” for 12 player chamber ensemble by Martin Lotz

Martin Lotz | Classic music composition

The exclusive and complex composition offers a variety of tempos and moods, just as much dynamism and is inspired by composers of the late Romantic period such as Nikolai Miaskovsky, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, Gustav Mahler and others. It also offers the balanced sound of a classical orchestra, reduced to a 12-16 player chamber orchestra.

The first two phases are played gently up to forte. In the third phase, the mood con anima, tempo andante dominates with string staccatos, underlaid with a cello solo. This is followed by a solo phase for violine and cello with flute. Towards the end of the work, there follows a cheerful phase leggerio in andante tempo. The solo flute introduces the phase, followed by legato strings and a staccato-backed violin solo. Towards the end the dynamics of the orchestra increase on forte. The last part of the piece is a calm, decaying phase in tranquillo, tempo larghetto.
