Program Notes

Serge Lancen's piece Cape Kennedy (known today as Cape Canaveral) was dedicated to the Mission Apollo 11 astronauts who landed on the moon in July, 1969. The piece represents eleven moments of the journey: prelude; launching; overcoming gravity; space travel; sense of immobility; contemplating a marvelous panorama; the travel goes on; a marvelous sensation; a disconcerting moon’s night; happily restoring earth contact; a glorious moon landing. The piece’s great achievement is its musical coherence in spite of diversity, both in terms of musical materials and space travel images. In 1978, the piece received an award at the first division of the World Championship of Wind Orchestras in Kerkrade, Netherlands.
