“Revived” was commissioned by “Royal Military Wind Band Johan Willem Friso” (NL) – according to an idea of their chief conductor Major Tijmen Botma – and in cooperation with “WMC Kerkrade” on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of “Muziekcentrale Adams” in Thorn (NL). 

The aim was to give the various orchestras around the world affected by the Covid19 pandemic new hope, élan and perspective in the form of a composition that could also be performed by smaller subensembles. In this way, despite the Covid19 restrictions, the orchestras can make music together again. 

“Revived” can be performed separately by;

  • Clarinet choir
  • Flutes, oboe(s), bassoon(s), saxes & contrabass
  • Brass & percussion
  • Wind band (All ensemble versions combined)

Also, the overture is delivered simultaneously in two different levels of difficulty:

  • Grade 3
  • Grade 4/5

A short but vibrant overture that hopefully will give pleasure to many sub-ensembles and orchestras all over the world.
