"A Festival Prelude" was composed in 2010 for the occasion of a regional wind band festival in the "Hausruck" area in Upper-Austria. Typical for wind bands is not only the fact that people from various social classes play together, but also people from different generations. For the opening tune of this festival, the composer didn’t have to think twice to combine both traditional as well as contemporary sound effects to create this homogenous composition. The opening fanfare is repeated in the second part of this prelude. The second, rhythmical part represents youth, followed by a hymn that depicts the more experienced musicians of each band. Woodsticks are the metrical basis of the rhythmical part’s percussion solo, in which musicians can express their creativity. They can use drum sticks, claves or any kind of wooden sticks.
