Modern wind music in the style of the great Big Bands was the model for the composition Band Fever. lt was written to a commission by the prestigious South Tyrolese concert band, Symphonic Winds. The piece features two soloists, one saxophone and one flugel horn. Rhythms like Hip Hop Style and Double Samba support a catchy melody, which is later taken up by the full band, forming the basis for the above-mentioned soloists’ improvisations. A unique work in the world of wind music, Band Fever allows both soloists and conductor to display individuality and creativity. lt is especially suitable as an opener to the light part of a concert, or as a feature number for special soloists in the orchestra.
