Fantasy for Concer Band by Oscar Navarro
It’s a fantasy for Concert Band dedicated to the “Municipal Band of Alicante” (Valencia,Spain) and an homage to the great Spanish composers of the late nineteenth and twentieth century. Those composers nurtured our country Culture and taken it beyond our borders. Composers who have made their music part of our lives and the Spanish National Culture before, now and forever.
With this piece, I wanted to make a nod to the Nationalist compositional language of late nineteenth and twentieth centuries and give a fresh touch without losing the traditional essence and of course using traditional rhythmic dances of our folklore.
The Alicante Municipal Band has never missed music in their programming from our ancestors, so with this piece I want to offer a badge to the Band, who can proudly wear everywhere and with a stamp with “Alicantina´s roots”, such as mine.
