Program Notes

The Dutch composer Harrie Janssen composed Adventures of the Beaumé to mark the 50th anniversary of his parents wedding. The composer of the march recalls his memories of the family home, and in particular the occupation of his parents. The Janssen family earned a living as inland carriers. "Beaume" was the name of the ship of his parents.

The first part of the march describes the adventures they experienced before the lock, to reach the port of Antwerp. To get here was by the law of the strongest and brutal. The father of the composer had in this much support from the oldest daughter of the family.

The themes in the trio reflect the carefree youth, the pleasant atmosphere and the warmth and dedication in Janssen's home.
