Program Notes

The fourth and final movement of the symphony depicts the rebuilding of shattered lives and restoring civilization. It begins in peaceful sadness; then grows from despair into restored faith and renewed hope. On the Sunday following the great earthquake, a minister gathered his flock for an impromptu church service on a grassy knoll in Golden Gate Park. Beside the minister stood a young man with a battered cornet. His melody drew hundreds of refugees of all denominations and creeds. They repeated in solemn voice "Other refuge I have none, hangs my helpless soul on Thee; leave, oh, leave me not alone, still support and comfort me." After the glorious and majestic finale, the coda, or epilogue, ends quietly with the final unresolved chord signifying the danger that still lurks beneath the Earth. It can and will strike again someday.
