TIME TO TAKE BACK THE KNIGHTS! (aka The Chosen) Band or Orchestra
TIME TO TAKE BACK THE KNIGHTS!... or as titled by Conductor Maurice Hamers: THE CHOSEN! appears on the STORMWORKS... Chapter THREE CD.
What makes this piece challenging is the interplay of component forces, and the need to move seamlessly between, and sometimes merge differing styles of Music. The piece begins with a bluesy, airy sax solo, reminiscent of a "Harlem Nocturne." But when the brass come in, we are in a world of Tchaikowsky-like military calls mixed with Jazz. The varied ghost-like voices of Knights distant and past call to us in these brass figures.
Contrasting sections depict a blending of Americana with Middle Eastern, with serenity and triumphal nobility.
