Info

It is of fundamental importance to a composer keeping in mind the specific sound of wind instruments and percussion. Therefore, when composing an opening fanfare, it is essential to write for resplendent brass in its optimum register. In a way the music is to convey a hero's life as shown in Richard Strauss' great tone poem (»Ein Heldenleben«, op.40) in an unmistakable manner. Apart from the brass instruments the composer Kees Vlak uses a double organ point. It puts strength into music - very much like the hero placing himself above his compatriots. A songlike anthem appears in the middle section, which is to be played softly by the weaker instruments of the band.
