When a music band celebrates its 225th anniversary, that is something extraordinary!

This was premiered at the spring concert on May 14, 2022 under the baton of Günther Kofler.

Melting Giants

I've wanted to do this for a long time... and finally found the time in the Lockdown and rewrote Melting Giants for symphony orchestra. The result is available as sheet music at Musikverlag Frank and as a demo (sorry, sampled orchestra only) on Youtube.
