Program Notes

Like previous marches by Jan Van der Roost (Mercury, Arsenal, Helios, Minerva, Artemis, Montana...) the overall character of Apollo is rather stately and noble. Broad themes and a lyrical trio melody offer the opportunity for various registers to shine and to display their qualities, making this concert march a captivating experience for players and audience alike! Starting in a minor key, the march soon turns towards the major, reflecting the festive character of a true “jubilee march”.

-Program Note from publisher

This concert march starts off in a minor key, switches to major during the trio, and stays there for the remainder of the song. The first half of the song is noble and fanfare-like, and then the piece switches to a more lyrical and legato style for the last half.

Commissioned by -- and dedicated to --The Philharmonic Winds OSAKAN (Osaka, Japan) on the occasion of their 10th anniversary. Premiere performance on 2 October 2009, conducted by Yoshihiro Kimura.
