The Challenge, Op. 28 (2004) – Video by G. Stolyarov II
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 SynthFont2 software, with the Evanescence 2 and GMR Basico 1.1 instrument packs.
This composition by Mr. Stolyarov attempts to convey the sensation of struggling through a difficult task or an adverse situation which requires the use of numerous faculties simultaneously. It is another exercise in creating polyphony and multi-instrumental composition. This piece is for two pianos, with an organ making a brief appearance at the end.
This composition is played using Finale 2011 software.
