Exaltation - wind band
Exaltation was commissioned by the Nielse Concertband on the occasion of their tenth anniversary.
Such a jubilee requires a composition specially created for the occasion.
The exuberant and lively introduction of the work refers to the history and the origin of this young
The Nielse Concertband was created by a merger of two music associations. The festive and jumping
melodies that flow into each other make the work festive, powerful and majestic. This musical
representation symbolizes the bringing together of these two associations.
The late Mr. Michel Versavel was the first conductor after the merger. The middle part, a beautiful coral,
is conceived as a hymn to him and an ode to the further growth and expansion of this association.
The end of Exaltation has a very energetic structure where the grand chords of the coral come back and
result in a festive and triumphant finale with a great dynamic power.
An ideal opener for every concert.
