    Duration: 3'30 - Price: €90

    Wals van Fantasie ("Waltz of Fantasy") is the first composition of Steven Henry and is until now the most succesful one. In this piece influences can be heard of Camille Saint-Saëns and George Bizet.
    The world premiere took place in 1999 and was performed by Auletes (concert band of the Eindhoven University of Technology), conducted by Jos van de Braak.

  • Binary Digits

    Duration: 17'

    "A bit is the basic unit of information in computing and digital communications. A bit can have only one of two values, and may therefore be physically implemented with a two-state device. These values are most commonly represented as either a 0 or 1. The term bit is a portmanteau of binary digit. . . . The length of a binary number may be referred to as its bit-length."
    (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bit)

    The composition "Binary Digits" is loosely built on a binary structure.

  • Paso Doble No. 1

    Duration: 3'30 - Price: €90

  • What's the weather like today?

    Duration: 3'30 - Price: €70

    "What's the weather like today?" was composed in 2005 under a different title as an encore for a concert of the Eindhoven University concert band "Auletes". In 2018 the piece was adapted for clarinet ensemble & percussion (drums).

    The composition incorporates elements from disco music as well as from funk music. Inspiration came from, among others, "It's raining men" by The Weather Girls. Hence the title. The middle part of the piece leaves room for improvisation.

  • Bart's Death

    Duration: 3'30

    This piece was written long after a personal experience of the loss of a family member, who died too young.

  • Concertfinale

    For concert band incl. horn quartet
    Duration: 3'30
    €65 excl. "H.V. Horn Quartet"
    €80 incl. "H.V. Horn Quartet"

    This is really a crazy piece of music. Suited to end a (carnavalesk) concert for example. There are happy themes, it will evolve in a chaos, the horn players will revolt, for short: one big happy chaotic party! (The end of) a concert will never be the same.

    The piece "H.V. Horn Quartet" can be included in this work.
