Program Notes

The story of the origin of Diagram for Symphonic Band is a curious one. André Waignein was enjoying a meal with his great friend Jean-Marie Vivier - representative director of l'Oreal Belgilux and the same man who made the performance of the famous Cantate aux Etoiles, with 750 performers, possible. Jean Plaquet, an appreciated associate of both gentlemen was also present.

As an acknowledgement, André Waignein wanted to dedicate a composition to the band where Mr. Vivier has been chairman for 20 years. In connection with this, André Waignein was supposed to receive some extra information about the 120 years old history of this band, which has always been led by a member of the Vivier family. In a flash this history was presented : using a diagram Mr. Vivier drew the power-lines of this more than 100 year old band.

And of course, the title was found! The only thing left to do, was for André Waignein to transform this diagram into music.
