Jean-Philippe Vanbeselaere has naturally used the many resources of Wind Orchestras to compose his first symphony : a wealth of tones and multiple combinations of sound colors, enriching thus the melodies and themes that follow each other throughout the different movements.
Without define this composition as a program music, the inspiration of this symphony built in 3 movments (1. Athena / 2. Hera / 3. Zeus) is more focused on the evocation of adventure, leaving a large place to the imagination.
