Symphony No. 4 "The Vietnam Symphony"

This release is available in Digital Download format ONLY.

Dann Glenn
Symphony No. 4
(The Vietnam Symphony)

This is the fourth in a series of six symphonic works by Glenn and the second to be distributed digitally. His mixture of full orchestra and digital sound processing creates an exotic, eerie soundscape that sonically transports the listener into another world.

Each movement carries you further and further into the Vietnam experience, sometimes cascading into harmonic waterfalls, and other times keeping you on the edge of your seat with stark Philip Glass-esque minimalism.

This is by far Glenn's most original work to date. The sounds of human voices, sometimes singing, sometimes unexpectedly shouting to you from the shadows, caps off this incredibly beautiful musical tapestry.

When listening to Glenn's Symphony No. 4, one might be best suited to lower the lights, burn some incense, and take the ride with no distractions. A perfect companion to Dann's Novel entitled "Almost a Proverb" which is based on his Vietnam experiences.

No.4
It's amazing how different each of Maestro Glenn's symphonies are. This work will have you pinned to your chair.

Allison

Symphony No.4
This is an epic and most original work. I've never heard music like this before. Somehow I get the feeling that this is the soundtrack to a movie only the composer was privvy to.

The Vietnam Symphony
I found this on Rhapsody and came back here. When the critic said, "Genuinely exciting, haunting and enigmatic"..."daring harmonies"...he was not kidding. An amazing and truly moving work of art.

Mitchell Burton

Symphony my ass
What the heck is this? It's no Symphony!! Sounded like an 7 year old pounding on a cheap keyboard. A Symphony implies and orchestra playing. This isn't. Sounds like only a Roland or Yamaha plastic keyboard with an child playing. the worse purchase I've ever made. Recommend that you avoid ALL this artists releases as they really make no sense.
The only "Classicial" thing about this is it's the classic crap that is clogging up the music system making it harder to find REAL music. I am disappointed that US music has fallen this far. Glad we in Europe have taste.. - Mitchell Burton esq.

The Vietnam Symphony
I picked this up because I had heard some of Glenn's earlier jazz works and wondered what he was up to. Classical??? OK, for thirteen bucks, why not listen? I did...

I can't say anything other than this is highly recommended, especially for those of us who grew up in the Vietnam era. One word comes to mind...INTENSE.

Set up well in the first three movements, "Vietnam" grabbed me (big time) with the battle sounds, the fractured national anthem and finally the beautiful classical orchestral complexity of movement 4.

Then the theme came back in movement 5, which was as grabbing in its simplicity as 4 was in its complexity.

Movement #6 was the real "Welcome to Hell" movement for me (though the opening movement claims that title). I could see the jungles and the feeling of impending death for someone.

Then, I was back on a college campus in a protest rally again in movement 7...everyone talking about "it", analyzing "it", complaining about "it", while this "it" was the reality for those who were actually there. Thank God, I was not.

Then back to reality for the rest of us in Requiem.

I did not expect this type of emotion. Do yourself a favor and find a free hour or so with your headphones and no interruptions.
