The White Bison (mp3)

The march The White Bison  (1988) was composed at the request of Air Force Colonel Jardon, commander of the 3rd Tactical Wing of Bierset in 1988.

The colonel had imposed three conditions:

1.       the march must have a military character. This appears in the opening fanfare and the martial theme of the first part.

2.      a short extract of the "Fous Volonts" must be recognisable. This melody is played by the horns and clarinets in the first part.

3.      finally, the main theme of the Belgian Air Force March should be recognisable.

The composer used this theme in the trio, in augmentation.
