Balázs Árpád: Promenade - Classical variations on a march theme
for concert band
score and parts
Árpád Balázs's work entitled Promenade evokes that period with undeniable sympathy and pays tribute to it, but in such a way that it becomes clear to everyone that this series of variations represents a 21st-century composer's reminiscences.The instrumentation itself shows that the composer is very familiar with the period he is referring to, and the possibilities of that time: in the relatively small pavilions there was room only for 'double brass'. The essentially complete woodwind section reveals that similarly to the works for wind band by the above-mentioned composers, this composition by Balázs is open-air music to be played sitting down. Music intended not for marching to, but for a promenade pavilion or rather a concert hall.Wherever Promenade is performed, its great wealth of melodies and extremely colourful instrumentation will ensure its success.
