Program Notes

Fantasia in G is a joyful celebration for winds and percussion. The piece was inspired by the opening line of Johann Schiller's poem Ode to Joy: "Freude, Schoener Goetterfunken" (Joy, Bright Spark of Divinity). The same text was used by Ludwig van Beethoven in his famed Symphony No. 9.

Fantasia in G was written for the St. Olaf College Band and was first performed by that ensemble in January 1983.
