Noten für BlasorchesterINTRADA Ein' Feste Burg
INTRADA is based on the Chorale ?Ein? Feste Burg? (A Safe Stronghold) by Martin Luther, from Psalm 46 (written in 1524). The song became the battle song of the Reformation and this setting contrasts the piety of the choral with modern rhythms and harmonies in a dramatic presentation.Three groups of antiphonal trumpets proclaim noble fanfares based on thematic ideas, trombones pay homage to an earlier age of church sackbut music, and percussion threaten imminent battle.
