Program Notes

This work tries to return to the fundamental principles of instrumental symphonic writing, with an easy-medium technical difficulty. In addition, the work aims to escape the abundant clichés present in this type of band repertoire, with classical formal writing and a cyclical development of the same thematic material during the four movements in a reduced format, appropriate to the level in question. These four movements are formally built according to the symphonic canon:

I: Sonata form
II: ABA ternary form
III: Rondo form (Scherzando)

IV: Sonata Form

Although the work is harmonically framed in a tonal language, it is enriched by the use of the “Major Hungarian” scale (CD # -EF # -GA-Bb), slightly moving away from the classical major-minor modal sound.

Finally, far from looking for a gimmicky language, motor development and counterpoint play an essential role during the approximately 10 minutes of the play.
