Daniel Bukin’s first entry into the symphonic genre is a half an hour of impassioned, bold, yet melodious content for any advanced orchestra. This work, presented in four movements in traditional order, is a perfect complement to any program.
The name "Autumn" is taken from a poem of the same name by the Russian poet
Alexander Pushkin. I originally used the text from this poem to compose a piece for SATB choir. The themes from that earlier piece are used as the basis for the 2nd and 4th movements of the symphony. Coincidentally, most of the symphony was composed during the Falls of 2016 and
2017. This piece is dedicated to my teacher, mentor, and friend, Christopher James Lees.
