Program Notes

In English, the title of this work is "Fanfare for the Solemn Procession of the Knights of the Order of St. John." It was composed in 1909 at the request of that society, which was founded in Jerusalem during the first crusade. Originally written for brass ensemble, Strauss later scored it for full orchestra.

- Program Note from Heritage Encyclopedia of Band Music


Strauss was already a well-known conductor and composer when he wrote Feierlicher Einzug der Ritter des Johanniter-Ordens (Solemn Entrance of the Knights of the Order of Saint John) in 1909. One of only a handful of his works written exclusively for winds, Strauss’s powerful, majestic Feierlicher Einzug is scored for 15 trumpets, 4 horns, 4 trombones, 2 tubas, and timpani. It was composed for the investiture ceremonies of the Order of St. John, a Western Christian military order that was founded in Jerusalem in 1023 to care for poor, sick, or injured pilgrims journeying to the Holy Land.
