Symphony No.2 (‘The Widening Gyre’)

for Orchestra

Full Score
In stock


Ritchie’s expansive and concept-heavy Symphony No.2 sees insistent quaver and semiquaver rhythms organised into jagged patterns, with playfully syncopated rhythmic interplay. Thunderous percussion and powerful brass evoke destructive warfare, turning to optimism in celebration of human progress, while tightly twisting canonic lines, infused with metaphorical meaning, display Ritchie’s mastery of counterpoint.
