Live Recording World First Performance

„Festmusik des LBO“ is a festive overture in which the new logo of the „LandesBlasOrchester Baden-Württemberg“ is explained in musical way in three parts without intermission.

The overture starts as a surprise, just walking into the beautiful land of Baden-Württemberg, a partial republic of Germany. „Movement and Rhythm

The main theme a proud, passioned theme – its all about the people working at LBO – starts and flows into the second theme based on the typical opening of the song „Loblied der Badener“. The use of many different pitches and scales are a metaphor for „Highs and Lows“.

After this another folksong of Baden-Württemberg is integrated, the more lyric „Hohenzollernlied“. The use of both of these folk-themes are standing for „Name, Values and Home“.

In the second part both folksongs are used in the thematic material. In this part the music is build up into a passioned and majestic climax. All the „Emotions and Passion“ reach their maximum of musical perception.

In the third part all thematic material is re-used in a fugatic way finding their way, everything combining, into a virtuous coda – just as the new logo is doing into one picture.

Of course the title of the overture is referring to the jubilee of 40 years of this great orchestra: „LandesBlasOrchester Baden-Württemberg

This piece was the winning composition of the composition contest “Logo in Sound” as held by the “LandesBlasorchester Baden-Württemberg” (2018)
