Program Notes

This flashing piece was commissioned by "Het muziekverbond van West-Vlaanderen" and is dedicated to the "Arlequino" youth band. Colorfully and effectfully instrumented, this piece speeds towards its finale without any tempo changes. The chord-blocks, which characterize the introduction, unite this virtuoso piece by reappearing in the end.
