Song of Hope - fanfare

Song of Hope - fanfare

Song of Hope is all about the universal thoughts of hope and solidarity. Kevin Houben took inspiration from

the poem ´Hope´ of the American poet Emily Dickinson (1830-1886).


“Hope” is the thing with feathers -

That perches in the soul -

And sings the tune without the words -

And never stops - at all -


And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard -

And sore must be the storm -

That could abash the little Bird

That kept so many warm -


I’ve heard it in the chillest land -

And on the strangest Sea -

Yet - never - in Extremity,

It asked a crumb - of me.


The composer gives a clear message: as bad as the world apparently looks, there is always the power of hope.

After the moving part, it is time for a celebration with a lively finale. All themes and motifs eventually culminate in a festive apotheosis.
