Variations on "La Folia" for Concert Band
Score preview
The content of the work consists of personal experiences of the composer.
On the one hand, the composition plays with the theme of the Spanish/Portuguese folia from the 16th century. This movement model has since been used by composers again and again as a model for a number of variation works.
On the other hand, the composition consists of a motif of 5 notes (F-Bb-E-F-Gb), which recurs in different constellations throughout the work.
After the opening, the folia theme is heard in the form used by Antonio Salieri in his 26 variations.
The composition proceeds through many variations of the folia, combined with variations of the opening motif, and passes through many different emotional moments. Joy is marred by brute interjections. There is fear of the unknown and at the same time curiosity and anticipation. A rollercoaster of emotions for 13 minutes until the work closes with the opening motif.
