Explore (2020)

for symphony orchestra
for wind band

'Explore' is a journey through the symphony orchestra. It does justice to every instrument group and uses different combinations between instruments and specific timbres. This transparent cinematic-sounding work imagines the listener in an adventurous atmosphere. The many time changes, dynamic contrasts and strong drive ensure four minutes of excitement! While listening, try not to look for structure. Let yourself be carried away by the melodies passed on from instrument to instrument. Two main themes are used, accompanied by different motifs.
