Program: → Revived, and many more
Wind bands worldwide are facing challenges due to the safety precautions of the COVID-19 virus, and “making music together” may be what is missed the most. In some countries, governments have introduced protocols that allow bands to make music at an appropriate distance from each other. For most bands, it’s impossible to play together as full ensemble, which makes smaller group rehearsals necessary as the remaining alternative.
Revived is an innovative work for wind band: a composition with three different layers which can be performed separately as ensemble pieces, and later – when a full ensemble is allowed – can be played together to form a completely new piece of music. Curious? Watch and participate!
The online premiere will take place on Saturday, 5 September at 14:00 (CEST) and can be viewed via live stream on the social media channels or via this link: → www.windmusicrevived.com
