Notes and Editorial Reviews

"O Earth, O Stars" is a double concerto for flute, cello and wind ensemble. In six movements, the piece is contemplative and introspective in mood and somewhat reminiscent of a mass or cantata in structure. The composer has said that the "story being told is one you find for yourself."

The Symphony No. 3 by Carlos Franzetti follows the traditional four movements with first movement in Sonata Allegro form incorporating fanfares, followed by an Adagio movement, a third movement scherzo in the Dorian mode and a fourth movement marked Finale Energico which makes use of tango rhythms.
