To write in 2011 a completely tonal music can probably offend a number of harsh, self-proclaimed progressive and uncompromising spirits. I will not reopen here this old and endless debate, but nevertheless want to briefly reiterate my position: tonality is a language, and thus a composition tool, no more no less sacred than any other, and possibly more able to illustrate certain categories of expression. In Moverture I used several types of tonal environment, and merged them in a symphonic patchwork.
