Escalation, Op. 53

This 2008 composition by Mr. Stolyarov for string orchestra, piano, organ, and timpani conveys an impression of increasing intensity and complexity as the same theme is varied by the addition of new instrumental parts. The melody in the strings is the same throughout the work, and once a melody has been established in any of the other parts, it does not change. The change and movement in this piece come from the “layering” of  newer instrumental parts on top of the older ones.

This work was remastered using the Finale 2011 software, with the Full Strings Arco, Full Strings Tremolo, Steinway Grand Piano, Church Organ, and Timpani instruments.
