The concert march Aurum (latin for gold) was written on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the conductor of the municipal band of Wolfach, in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. 
The march begins with a light and playful theme. The following lyrical trio provides a contrast, with its nod to Edward Elgar. After a number of key changes the introductory theme returns in canon. Finally, the music heads to a majestic finale, in which the trio theme is played as a splendid baroque chorale.
