With the heroic introduction of its ceremonial fanfare, the work centers around an elegant melody flowing above a regal march style. The uplifting and flourishing melodic character offers wishes for a bright future, underscored by the introduction’s indication of espressivo, encouraging much musical artistry and expression.
The composer states that this work is great as a concert opener or encore in a variety of situations. Optional cuts are indicated for a two-minute version, the introductory fanfare can stand alone, and there is also a brass band only option. It has the flexibility to be performed by as few as 20 members or a full symphonic band.
