A service in fellowship with all refugees
Individuality and technical mastery are apparent throughout the four movements of Goetz's Symphony in F. The excellence of the orchestration suggests that the music was conceived orchestrally.
In the first movement the style is essentially polyphonic, the very pleasing themes are short and terse and treated with great contrapuntal skill. The second movement is a delightful intermezzo based on two themes: first, a horn call, and second, an airy Mendelssohnian tune for wood-wind over an accompaniment for strings pizzicato, both of which are worked out in combination with considerable rhythmic interest. The slow movement is tranquil and thoughtful in mood, and the finale, a rondo, is a brilliant and high-spirited movement.
