The Challenge, Op. 28

Both the rapid tempo and the minor passages of this composition are representative of tension and struggle, properly created, in Mr. Stolyarov’s view, through this method rather than by dissonance. The melody transitions frequently from minor to major to illustrate a rational man’s intense exertion in the face of a challenge, and the successful (and pleasant) consequent outcome.

This work was composed in 2004 and remastered using the SynthFont 2 software, with the Evanescence 2 and GMR Basico 1.1 instrument packs.
