Out of Stock


Symphony No. 7 (1989/1990) by Gloria Coates is a 26-minute work for orchestra in three movements:

I. The Whirligig of Time

II. The Hourglass of Time

III. The Corridors of Time

After twenty years of developing her linear glissando structures, the commission of the South German Radio Stuttgart enabled Gloria Coates to write a symphony for a large orchestra including quadruple woodwind and brass. In the midst of a time of uncertainty in Germany, the feeling of unrest became part of her music "along with the compression of time-events which took the form of masses of gradually moving sound" (Gloria Coates).

Symphony No. 7 was recorded and broadcast in January 1991 by the Stuttgart Philharmonic, conducted by Georg Schmöhe, and received its first public performance at musica viva Munich in 1997 by the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Olaf Henzold.

The full score (EP 14591) is available for sale as part of the Peters Contemporary Library. The performance material can be hired.
