Caledonia In Caledonia, Oliver Waespi adapted three well-known Scottish folk songs into a rhapsodic suite for wind orchestra. The first, rather humorous song, The Devil Came Fiddling Through the Town, tells the story of a devil who, as he passes through the streets of the town, catches the tax inspector and carries him off, much to the delight of the inhabitants. The second song, Ye banks and braes, is gentle and melancholy and based partly on the folk song Hey, tuttie tattie. Oliver Waespi took a symphonic approach to the adaptation of these lovely songs, which makes this a unique and innovative suite that can be performed at a concert or contest. The individual parts can also be performed separately.

Divertimento This grand work contains four contrasting movements. The first movement, Prelude, takes the form of an overture: it raises the curtains and marks the beginning of the piece. The brilliant motifs of the opening are contrasted by a calmer and more lyrical central section, after which the triumphant opening returns for the movement’s end. The second movement, Meditation, explores the intimate sounds of the oboe, as well as those of the flute and French horn, backed by a rich orchestral accompaniment. The third movement presents a more upbeat Procession, but not a Procession of the Nobles, as written by Rimsky-Korsakov. Quite the opposite, Procession resembles a “second line” procession from New Orleans, whose up-beat rhythms invite everyone to dance in the streets rather than the measured pacing of a march. Divertimento ends with a Hoedown, the tradition American folk dance idiom, when the band has the opportunity for both vivacity and virtuosity and may play as fast as it can. It is important to play all four movements with precision, clarity and, most importantly, enthusiasm.

Il Cantico Commissioned by the Stadtharmonie Zurich Oerlikon-Seebach for the 2005 WASBE Conference in Singapore“Il Cantico” was inspired by the poem “Cantico di Frate Sole” (Canticle of Brother Sun) by St. Francis of Assisi. In this famous mystic poem, St. Francis expresses his gratitude to God for the creation of nature, the sun, the earth and the living beings.“Il Cantico” is based on specific parts of St. Francis’s poem. A slow, dreamlike song in the flute leads gradually to the appearance of the sun, the light energy of which is expressed by radiant, powerful music in the brass instruments. The next, slower part of the work is dedicated to the moon (sora luna), a sort of mirror of the sun, and to the stars (le stelle). The music becomes more thoughtful, leads to a calm sound field in the woodwinds and later to a mystic horn solo. Still during the slow part, several chord fragments flash up, thereby announcing the fast ultimate part of the work. This part is about the fire (frate focu) illuminating the night, some sort of representative of the sun on earth. Towards the end of the work, the sun theme is combined with the fire theme.Besides these images, a purely musical structure guides the development of Il Cantico. Almost the entire piece evolves from a basic four-tone cell which appears in the horns and flute at the beginning. Consequently, the work is mainly monothematic and structured in the form of a metamorphosis. The basic cell gradually leads to a rich melodic and harmonic development. This basic material is later completed by a new chord series belonging to the fire theme. In the conclusion both approaches are combined.

Canzun ‘Canzun’ is the Rhaeto-Romanic term for ‘song’ or ‘chant’. The work Canzun is based on two songs from the folk tradition of the Alps. In the middle movement, we hear the Canzun della Sontga Margriata, an old song from the Bündner Mountains about the legend of Saint Margriata. At the beginning and the end of the composition, motifs from a Maria hymn from Vorarlberg can be heard. Thus, two songs from neighbouring Alps regions are connected and developed together creating lively, dynamic sections as well as lyrical, lofty passages. The strength of the concert band gives room to wide, expressive melody lines in many contrasting sound colours.

Temples The music of "Temples" evolved out of different sources of inspiration. The most impor-tant of them were four temples belonging to Angkor, a group of temple ruins in Cambo-dia. These temples represent several centuries of Khmer history, one of the most im-portant ancient cultures of South East Asia, and are characterised by both Buddhist and Hindu influences. Furthermore, four biblical text fragments from the Book of Eccle-siastes, chapter 3, became more and more important during the composition process. Hence, each of the four episodes of the work is related to a biblical text and an Angkor temple. Besides this architectural and spiritual imagery, a purely musical structure underlies the whole piece, namely a sequence of intervals which has an architectural analogy in the height proportions of the main towers of Angkor Wat. My aim was to combine an ab-stract fabric of musical relationships with the sensual and emotional impact these tem-ples and their history made on me while visiting them.PHNOM BAKHENG"� there is a time to be born and a time to die..."The music at the beginning is inspired by the old temple "Phnom Bakheng� erected in the 9th century A.D., also referred to as "first Angkor". It is conceived as a temple-mountain, corresponding to the mythical mountain "Meru", home of the Gods according to Hindu belief. The music describes the awakening of life, the variety of living beings, the birth of human civilisation. Low, seemingly undefined chords form the soil out of which long melodic lines begin to emerge. After a gradual increase in speed, a transi-tion leads to a lively episode characterised by bright colours and flourish-like gestures. Later on, the music becomes overshadowed by darker colours, as if the sun was dis-appearing.BAYON"... a time for war and a time for peace..."Mysterious chords build up the scene for the entry of the trumpets and trombones, placed off-stage near the audience and playing menacing signals with increasing inten-sity. This dramatic episode depicts the war, a consequence of the diversity between different people and cultures. The temple "Bayon" with its rugged skyline, an architec-tural masterpiece dating from Angkors flowering period, contains many war descrip-tions on sandstone reliefs, leaving no doubts that the Khmer civilisation, like many oth-ers, was built upon a great deal of warfare.PREAH KHAN"... a time to mourn and a time to dance..."A sequence of huge chords marks the entry into the temple "Preah Khan", the "Sacred Sword". This temple, mysterious and partly overgrown by virgin forest, was erected as a sanctuary in the 12th century A.D. on a battlefield. After the dramatic conflict of the second episode, a dirge follows, some kind of procession. This ritual has a mournful nature at first, but becomes more and more hopeful after a sudden shift of tonality and a calm, solemn statement of the tenor horns. Later on, reminiscences of the first epi-sode appear and lead to an increasingly joyful music.ANGKOR WAT"... a time to tear down and a time to build ..."It is now, after both an outward and an inward conflict, that the re-building of something new becomes possible. This renewal is symbolised by the fascinating central temple "Angkor Wat" with its accomplished architecture. The motivic material of earlier epi-sodes finds itself transformed and reappears in broad and luminous sound fields which bring the work to a close.

2nd Sinfonietta “2nd Sinfonietta” was composed in 2005 for the “Musikgesellschaft Cham” and is made up of three parts, each flowing into the next. The themes presented in the first movement migrate through the work and return transformed at the end. Each part has its own colour and calls on a varied sound palette. This composition has been put together in an ingenious and thoughtful manner and is suitable for prestigious concerts or as choice piece for competitions.

Fanfare And Funk This work by Swiss composer Oliver Waespi was one of the highlights at the 2006 Eidgenössische Musikfest in Lucerne. The piece opens with a festive fanfare featuring the brass section. The mood changes to a funk passage which develops and grows into a James Brown-like groove. It also includes an ad libitum drum solo. A slow blues lends a calmer feel and the piece culminates with striking interwoven fanfare and funk styles. This work is highly recommended for concert programmes but it can also make a spectacular, unconventional choice for a competition.

Legenda Rumantscha Six Rhaeto-Romanic folk songs from Graubünden, the largest canton of Switzerland, form the basis for this splendid piece by Oliver Waespi. The composer reproduces these melodies almost verbatim and works them into a rhapsody. This piece is ideal for a concert or competition and especially allows for in depth work on band sound.

Berglicht The sun glides over the white-blue rock, the glaring back-light on the snowflakes whisked up by the wind, mirror-images in waterfalls and ice-fields, glaciers veined with moraines, further on the dark caves and cliffs, stone chasms that seem infinitely dark, the cool shadow on the north flank of the rocks, damp chilliness, woods at the foot of the valley. An unceasing interplay of light and shade teaches us, mankind, to get a feel of the Alps.These powerful, almost poetic images spark off the composer�s creative process, which much later results in "Berglicht". Another important compositional element is the chorale "Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern", which enhances the idea of 'light' even more. In this way "Berglicht" turned out as a choral fantasy for a large wind orchestra, composed on commission to the Stadtmusik Saltina Brig and its conductor Edo Zurwerra for the Alpenstadt 2008 festival.At the start of the work, after a short overture, the brass introduces parts of the chorale theme, accompanied by bright chords from the woodwind. This is followed by a quick section with the first variations on the theme, first very rhythmically, then tunefully. Then we hear an idyllic "Pastorale d�été", though the mood gradually becomes darker. The full theme is now introduced for the first time by muted brass, accompanied by sombre chords from the woodwind. Slowly but surely the tension increases, while the theme of the chorale nevertheless unfolds once again in a dramatic but only fragmentary way. Towards the end, calm gradually returns. The light shines once again and the theme rings out one last time, but now with a different timbre and rhythm. The mountain light slowly but surely makes way for a peaceful and joyful atmosphere.

Festive Impressions This brilliant opening work with the sub-heading �Cinematographic Overture� is guaranteed to make a great impression on your audience. The piece starts with solemn brass-band motifs, followed by melodic movements in the quiet middle part that leads to a rich climax. At the end of this refreshing work, there is a reprise of the brass bands which reflects the spirit of this music very well. After all, this is the intention of this work which was written specially for the �Musikverein Henggart� to celebrate their 75th anniversary.

Audivi Media Nocte Audivi Media Nocte is based on the eponymous motet by Thomas Tallis from the 16th Century - a work that holds great fascination for Oliver Waespi. During the process of composition, various chord sequences and rhythmical structures emerged that led the work in the direction of a musical drama, with elements of a concerto grosso and solos for different soloists. An innovative, virtuoso and gripping work that can also take you far in competitions!

Symphonic Variations This work is dedicated to Fritz Neukomm and was created at the MidEurope Festival in 2004 by the Schweizer Armee Spiel. The basic theme of this work is founded on a series of chords which are played in an archaic order. The variations that follow are not only musical variations of the theme, but also create a separate line that runs in parallel as a result of the choice of instruments. This piece is undoubtedly a real challenge for any ambitious orchestra and is extremely suitable for competitions and prestigious concerts.
