La Melodia della Fantasia

Recorded (live) by Koninklijk Bevers Harmonie Orkest, Beveren-Leie (B) – conducted by Bert Decavel.

Was composed in 2009. I found inspiration for this work in this photo full of atmosphere of a landscape. Without knowing where or what it is or perhaps just because of this lack of knowledge, I could give my fantasy full rein.

I have attempted to translate the atmosphere summoned up by the picture into a musical dream world. The colour tones of a wind orchestra (wind band) are especially suitable for this. The diverse solo passages in the whole orchestra eventually lead to a great climax, after which the work end in silence, as if the landscape of the photo disappears behind the horizon.
