Hello everybody! I have decided to compose an introducing overture for Shakespeare's tragedy Macbeth. It's for my thesis for music. With the music I have tried to make the characteristics of the main charachter Macbeth clear to the audience. To develop myself, I always try something new with all my compositions. So, I sometimes write for a completely new instrument to learn more and to develop my skills. This time I wanted to write a piece, which is based on five themes: Ambitious Noble & loyal Cautious Brave Opportunistic On the basis of these five themes I composed the music. The inspiration for this technique came from Strauss' Till Eulenspiegel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zbCfP9wGt4 In the scherzando finale I want to emphasize that, although Macbeth is a tragedy, the play ends pretty optimistic. Scotland the brave is played when Malcolm becomes the new king of Scotland. Huray! Although I am not very satisfied with the result, I like the experience with this completely different idea of only using themes and motifs for an entire play. Enjoy!
