This is a triumphal march – a monumental celebration of great victories and accomplishments. It employs three principal related themes, with each theme being accompanied by a variation immediately after it is presented. The majority of the march is composed for two pianos, a brass section, and timpani – although the second occurrence of the first two theme-variation blocks is orchestrated differently, with the brass section being replaced by an organ and a second part added for timpani.
This work was originally composed in 2009 and has been remastered using the Finale 2011 software.
This composition by Mr. Stolyarov was written down in 2002, but some parts of it were virtually impossible to perform for a pianist of any skill. This version of the composition is played using Finale 2011 software and the Steinway Grand Piano instrument.
Two themes predominate in this work. Their juxtaposition is unusual in that the meters of each theme differ. The opening theme (A) is in 2/4 meter, whereas the second main theme (B) is in 3/4 meter. Both themes are marches, though B is noticeably heavier than A both in terms of the mood and the chords involved. The melodies of both A and B are alternated and repeated throughout the work, but the accompaniment changes dramatically. The last appearance of theme A, for instance, has it accompanied by scales of 32nd-notes — a virtually impossible feat for any human musician to execute.
Composition by Mr. Stolyarov from early 2002, played in 2011 Finale Software using the Steinway Grand Piano instrument. This composition combines waltz-like and march-like elements. Be alert for a surprising turn around 45 seconds into the piece.
