Wind Band - The wind band Groussbus (Luxembourg) celebrated its 160th anniversary in 2016. Started as a choir but later turned into a wind band. To celebrate this happy event Tim Kleren was asked to write a composition. It had to become a reflection of the modern age and yet of the history of the band. 160 years ago there was only one choir in the village and some singers could not get along with the others. They just founded a new choir. Today both bands are getting along again and to emphasize that musically the musicians are singing in the middle part of the composition.

Grade 5 - 13:30 Min
Wind Band - Fanfare Band - The key element of this composition consists of 4 notes: Bb, B, F and D. They are always present in the whole work. Be it as a chain (transposed or normal), development in the chords, or as a reversal. These notes have a major and a diminished chord. Individually they sound trivial but together they give a tension that is felt throughout the whole work. The shape of the composition is very exciting, solo, touched and concerned (Impensierito) or simply powerful packaged as if it were a suite. The new style of writing, unlike before, provides the composer with another way to express his feeling in music. A kind of Continuation. The composition is dedicated to Marco Pütz as a thank you. He was Kleren’s teacher's in instrumentation and orchestration.
