Hymne a la Musique
Door Serge Lancen type 43 en thema Slow Movements/Original Compositions
This hymn, written in 1970 and published in 1971, is dedicated to the youth of the famous 'Banda Primitiva' of Lliria (Spain), an outstanding symphonic band that has welcomed Serge Lancen many times. The composer performed as a soloist with this prestigious band and was made an honorary member of their society. The Banda Primitiva, conducted by José Maria Malato Ruiz, premiered the Hymne à la Musique at a concert in Lliria on 23 October 1972. This tribute to music is one of Lancen's easiest compositions, yet it is a little jewel based on a simple theme introduced by the clarinets and the saxophones. The tune develops slowly and, by means of a crescendo, ends in a culminating point bringing together all musicians.
