VARIATIONS

for concert band



VARIATIONS was Wim Henderickx's first big work for ORCHESTRA, commissioned by Jeugd en Muziek Orkest, Antwerpen (Antwerp Youth Orchestra ) in 1988.

In 2010 the composer rewrote this work for the young musicians of SJOE (Symphonic Youth Orchestra, Edegem), commissioned by deSingel in Antwerp.

Hannes Vanlancker rewrote this work for wind band and conducted this version in 2013 with the wind band of the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp, for his final exams.

The work is a mixture of the variation form and the song structure ABA.

The orchestral power of his vast symphonic work TEJAS (2009) is already tangible in this early work.
