Program Notes

Commissioned by "Harmonie d Drie Horens," Franz Hendrikx, conductor.

- Program Note from score

This work, reminiscent of a film score, describes the history of the Dutch town horn. A broad lyrical theme, played by the horns, depicts the history of this town on the river Meuse. A cheerful allegro represents rural life around the town and its castle. Following this the horn theme returns and the music changes dramatically. A drum roll symbolizes the times of war that the town and castle have known. The threatening music eventually develops once more into the hopeful horn theme, a sign of reconstruction and the future.
