Program Notes

Kevin Houben is a Belgian composer who has written more prominently for the Belgian brass band movement. His Valley of the Pinios was written originally for the Belgian brass band Retie and was later rescored for concert band.

The work is a musical representation of an area in north-central Greece that is known for its monumental sandstone rock formations and the grandeur of the secluded valley for which it is named.
