The Ignition – Kindling of a flame.

 

In this context I imagined the flame to be the passion for orchestral music. Bold, energetic, rhythmically engaging and heroic - anything a fanfare would need. My initial motivation for this piece came up right after I visited a concert from the Düsseldorf Symphonic Orchestra. The concert was from a series that goes by the same name as this piece and aims at a younger audience.

 

I envisioned this piece to be a worthy opener of this unique occasion.
