Winter: Antigona Overture



FE11                     2222/4200/ timps strings

Introduzione; Allegro maestoso

This overture grips the listener from the first note. The portentous slow introduction interspersed with sighing figures in the violins followed by a powerful and forbidding Allegro. A lyrical 2nd subject cannot hide the fact that there are dark forces at work. Later there are wailing woodwind solos and tortured passages for the full orchestra. This is a real theatre piece and you really wish the curtain could come up at the end. In fact, the original goes straight into the first scene, so a concert ending has been supplied from the very end of the opera.
