A powerful work for the symphonic band; Ode to the Spirit of Man is based on thematic material taken from the fourth movement of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 and developed into a fantasy of kaleidoscopic nature. The opening is a joyful expression of the spirit of freedom and is based on the composer's own themes derived from Beethoven's music. Throughout the work; various themes from the symphony are interwoven; including Alla Marcia; Scherzo; Andante maestoso and finally the uplifting Ode to Joy. Dur: 5:15
