Sym­pho­ny in One Move­ment, com­posed in 1981, was orig­i­nal­ly scored for orches­tra and remained unper­formed. This tran­scrip­tion for con­cert band was made ear­ly in 2020, with mod­i­fi­ca­tions to the begin­ning sec­tion plus exten­sion of the coda. 

The ener­getic influ­ence of mid-20th cen­tu­ry Unit­ed States is strong­ly evi­dent through­out the piece. I com­posed it not long after I moved to the Los Ange­les area, and at the time I thought it not a bad idea to make inquiries into the film indus­try. I need­ed some­thing along the lines of film music in my port­fo­lio, and that was to be Sym­pho­ny in One Move­ment. Being unlike any­thing I had com­posed up to that point, it offers a some­what com­mer­cial appeal.

How­ev­er, I nev­er found my way into film music, and the rest – as it is said – is his­to­ry. Now, the inten­tion is for Sym­pho­ny to be a wor­thy addi­tion to the band repertoire.
