Armas Järnefelt: Festouverture for symphonic wind band


Järnefelt composed his Festouverture (Festive Overture) for the official opening of the Finnish National Theatre in 1902. The overture is firmly anchored on a jubilant D major and observes the traditional sonata-form scheme. Fennica Gehrman commissioned a band transcription from professor Robert J. Ambrose as soon as the symphony version score was engraved in 2019.
