Program Notes

In October 1997, Jacob de Haan visited the Swiss village of St. Moritz, where he worked as a conductor with a symphonic wind band. The mountains around St. Moritz were covered in marvelous autumn colors. The colors, the quietness and nature itself, inspired Jacob de Haan to compose this lyrical composition.
