Fanfare for the Champions was commissioned by the municipal concert band of Landeck under the direction of helmut schmid on the occasion of the 375th anniversary of the band. The orchestra, which premiered Nostradamus (a key work of the composer), and which also commissioned Mantua – Freedom of the Eagle, has forged a friendship with the composer over a period of many years. This orchestra has participated in the major European competitions and has always performed with distinction – thus the title of the work Fanfare for the Champions. The fanfare, which is written in a style typical for the composer, should convey a feeling of happiness: the feeling to have created or accomplished something special. Don’t resist that feeling!
