FANFARE AND THEME FROM TELLINGS
for Concert Band
The piece was inspired by the wish to regain the freedom that we have been deprived of during these months of world pandemic. A short opening fanfare introduces a brilliant theme which gradually evolves up in a short hymn to freedom written in a 2/2 tempo and grandioso style. As obstacles that precede the attainment of the objective, little clusters often disturb the theme and adorn a short variation of the theme followed by the final coda. The closing coda represents the last effort that precedes the conquest of freedom. The freedom is represented by a strong final C major chord.
