The Unknown Place is a 9 minute modern-classical symphonic phantasy for large symphonic orchestra in one movement, based upon two themes. Probably listeners will find the music creepy, as the title of the piece might suggest something like that. No need to explain the title further. Just let the music speak and it’s up to the listeners to imagine their own unknown place. After 5 minutes the music calms down but mystery remains up to and including the last note. Digital performance using Sibelius 6 and Kontakt Gold. Score moving videos are on my YouTube-channel.
