BIRMINGHAM, Ala., July 17 /EMWNews/ -- "Esmeralda" -- a piano concerto by Gavin McMillan Fulmer of Birmingham, Alabama -- has recently been described as, "Chopin meets Danny Elfman," as stated by Dr. Don Sanders (musicologist and professor) at Samford University. The production studio, Sound Raven Studios, has spent the last seven years working on Esmeralda's first movement. Because of its programmatic nature, the concerto is divided structurally into three Acts. The first act musically portrays Vladamyr (an exiled Romanian Count) who seeks out Esmeralda, a Spanish princess of untold beauty. After rejection, Act 2 focuses on the great personal conflict within Vladamyr's character, as he tries to come to terms with Esmeralda's lack of interest. Act 3 depicts Esmeralda's eventual acceptance of Vladamyr's intrigue. However, a great war in Romania causes Vladamyr to return just as the two unite. The first movement of "Esmeralda" is slated to be entered into a Concerto/Aria competition by November 2008 at Samford University. Though a performer has not been formally "cast" to perform this movement, it will most likely be one of Samford's very talented piano performance majors. If the concerto is one of the winners, it will be performed some time in March/April of 2009. Gavin McMillan Fulmer is a freelance film/game composer who resides in Birmingham, Alabama. His production studio, Sound Raven Studios, focuses on the creation of original soundtracks for both the film and video-game industries. He has placed music within a MMO RPG entitled, "Ultiaris," and Mr. Fulmer's "War of the Worlds" tribute soundtrack has been reviewed by Cinescape/Mania.com's Randall Larson.
