First recording of the version for symphonic wind orchestra of my Vita Aeterna Variations, performed the 11th of November, 2018, in the St. Valentine Church of the Swiss town of Rüthi, by the Sinfonisches Blasorchester Vorarlberg, conducted by Thomas Ludescher:
Please note the following:
– this recording was made with a simple device.
– the acoustics of the church necessitated slower tempi than indicated.
– it was very cold in the church, as a result of which the first oboist had water in the keyholes of his instrument in the fugue.
In spite of this, the performance certainly has its merits, and this recording gives a good overall impression of the composition.
There are also versions for brass band, Op. 62 no. 2 (Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5_gBREJL3k), for symphony orchestra and for fanfare orchestra (Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRCVIMSFP0M&t=84s).er
