Perhaps a strange characteristic, but mankind has always had a fear of changing centuries and millennia. The end of the world and all kind of natural catastrophes has been forecasted, but have never come to pass. In For The Next Thousand composer Otto Schwarz tries to be more positive. In this piece he makes a toast to the new age, in which wind music too has to find a new way of staying attractive. The piece has elements of film music and has a slow-rock middle section, with a sax solo. With this piece, Schwarz hopes to make a contribution to the renewals necessary within the wind band scene.
