The Sixth Symphony

The Sixth Symphony by Jeff Tritel

In the sculptor's words...

This is a complex piece and I think you have to spend time with it in order to appreciate its complexities. There is one particular theme in this sculpture which is a flat band that occurs over and over again in different variations. The curve of the violin itself appears a number of times in the figure. The whole is subordinated to the parts in this sculpture. When I look at this, I can hear "Beethoven's Pastoral", the sixth symphony, in all its aspects. I feel the storm, the thunder, the lightning, the early raindrops, as well as the more serene passages. Different angles feel like different symphonic movements.
