The Swan on the Hill

Submitted by David Deese on 18 December, 2021 - 07:37

Joe Brashier brought The Swan on the Hill to my attention years ago. In a recent dinner with him I was reminded of it. I played it with my top high school band back then. I would give anything to be able to make music like that again! Sadly, times have changed, but with high hopes, my students and I will embrace that song again before I retire. I am not sure why, but The Swan moves me and reminds me of what music can mean. What a blessed re-discovery! I wish music like this was more known in the US. Sadly, some of the best music does not get the attention it should, which deprives so many people experiences which touch the soul and mind. Thank you for sharing music with so many!

Shr geehrter Herr van der Roost, bei dem feierlichen Gelöbnis am 20. Juli 2021 wurde ein Stück aus Ihrer Komposition "Ridukim" gespielt. Ich wäre Ihnen sehr verbunden, wenn Sie mir mehr Informationen zu Ihrem Wekr geben könnten. Sie komponieren ausschließlich Auftragswerke. Ich würde mich sehr freuen, wenn Sie mir etwas zur Entstehungsgeschichte von "Ridukim" mitteilien könnten.

Bonjour, Je reviens tout juste d'un concert du groupe de clarinettes Mo6 de Breda qui a joué votre morceau "Puszta", à Chateaubourg en France. C'était formidable et envoûtant! Un grand Bravo! Jean-Marie

Fantastique oeuvre qu'est Stonehenge. Il nous manquait une oeuvre a notre thématique des merveilles du monde. Malgré le fait que c'est un grade 6, que mon band ne sont pas des professionnels, nous avons monter cette oeuvre que les musiciens ont appréciés au plus haut point. Bravo pour les atmosphères et à M. Takahashi pour l'orchestration pour harmonie qui sonne superbement bien. Vivement la prochaine saison avec une autre de vos pièces. Un gros merci du Canada

Today, in band, we listened to Puszta. I love this piece. It is very pretty. Gypsy is my favorite part. It is very relaxing. Very good piece Mr. Roost :)

You have not added A SOLDIER'S STORY on your list but I have the score and it is absolutely wonderful.

Your music is exceptional! You have real potential togo furthur than you already are and as a profesional singer, piano, violin and wind instrument player; I know! Keep going and success will come and the next thing you know you will be a star!Not to forget that I would love to have you in one of my composed groups (by me). Very very good. I must say... But lastly, I would like to note that you need more music - you should show off your ability and get out there and perform your heart out! Thank you for being amazing.

Stonehenge is one of the most exciting and atmospheric compositions

Stonehenge is one of the most exciting and atmospheric compositions for brass band I have ever heard! I have the CD of the Sun Life Band's live winning performance of it at the 1993 Kerkrade World Music Contest - I play it over and over, it is simply amazing! Congratulations! Gill (Sun Life Band and now Jan van der Roost fan)
