Hidamari – Jan Van der Roost

Subtitle: Rhapsody for Wind Orchestra

De Haske Concert and Contest Collection Grade 4,5 – Duration: 11:20

Edelweiss Brass Orchestra is a Japanese concert band based in the heart of Tokyo, Japan. Founded in 1978, the ensemble has grown from musical strength to strength and in 2018 they commissioned a new work with Jan Van der Roost for their 40th anniversary concert. The title Hidamari could loosely be translated as “In the Sunshine”. A short quote from the famous musical The Sound of Music (you got it, ‘Edelweiss’!) is a subtle nod to the name of the commissioning ensemble. Hidamari reflects the idea that EBO is like a home for all musicians: together, they are one big family.
