Composition for fanfare orchestra, well suited to play on any festive occasion with a slightly serious undertone.
This composition by Peter Habraken dates from 2019 and is rich in melodic ideas. Originally written for wind orchestra. This version for fanfare orchestra is created in 2020 by the composer himself.
Two main themes - the most important melodies in this piece - form the musical fundament of this work, and are contrasting by nature: the first one sounds fanfare-like and majestic, the second one more restrained, like a hymn.
When the hymn reappears in another key, it is elaborated in a polyphonic manner: more and more instruments join in, playing the same melody in imitation. Together the musicians build the piece towards a glowing conclusion.
This composition is exceptionally well suited to play on any festive occasion with a slightly serious undertone. Also very useful as an opener.
Note to the performer: In case you would need a shorter opener for your program, it is recommended to start from “M”. Only the first main theme is then elaborated, reducing the length of the piece from 6:15 to 2:10.
