Symphonic Suite No. 2

- And The Medieval Tale Continues

A symphonic work for orchestra in six movements


Symphony No. 2 "And The Medieval Tale Continues" is the sequel to Symphony No. 1. The two works are organically connected with a continuous theme. 


Although the story is set in medieval times, the idea behind this work is that human nature does not seem to change much and, as such, the same outcomes seem to keep reoccurring. I started writing this work back in 2007 and the music has been written to reflect medieval motifs.

Recorded in January 2016 with the Janacek Philharmonic Orchestra.



1. The Gathering of Forces – A Call to Arms
2. The Night Before The Battle

3. The Seige

4. A Call for Peace
5. Hail To The New King
6. A Brave New World
