About the album

A quite typical phenomenon within the World of wind band music is the organization of contests, a competition between several wind bands. Since 1951 Kerkrade hosts a prestigious event which boasts a worldwide reputation and which can be called a real trend setter as to concert contests and the repertoire performed at these contest. It was an immediate success which got surpassed at each of the following editions. In 2013 we had the sixteenth edition of the WMC which hosted no less than sixty-three symphonic wind bands (harmonie) from different parts of the world, gathering in the province of Limburg in July. People from many different nationalities took hold of the former colliery town Kerkrade to try or at least expect or hope to get eternal fame on this international scene.
The eye-catchers on these compact discs are, of course, first of all the test-pieces of the concert division and the 1st division including the unique composition Sinfonia Resurrectionis by Vaclav Nelhybel. This extensive work has been revised and digitalized for the World Music Contest in order to be well-suited for the concert division. Extreme Beethoven was commissioned from Johan de Meij by the WMC Foundation and was performed by no less than nineteen symphonic bands. Add to this recordings performances of top wind bands and maestro's such as Kon. Harmonie Sainte Cécile, Eijsden (NL) (Jan Cober), the Spanish Banda de Lalín (Bram Sniekers), Kon. Harmonieorkest Vooruit, Harelbeke (Belgium)(Geert Verschaeve), Harmonie St. Petrus & Paulus Wolder-Maastricht (NL)(Matty Cilissen) completed with orchestra's from Germany, Austria, Italy and Thailand, you get f CD’s which we call Wind Band Music from Kerkrade in top form.
