Celtic Child






wind band

concert work, contest piece


In this composition which consists of three parts, the world and life of children is the composer’s leitmotiv. Part 1 suggests the untamed creativity of the child in a virtuoso and dynamic allegro. Part 2 is a quiet protest against the indifference and the injustice that many children still experience. A whirling Celtic dance ends in a grand finale that praises the beauty of all things in part 3. This is an ideal work for a concert or a competition. Dedicated to all children. All vocal parts can be left out since they are doubled in the rest of the band.(ad libitum)
