Heard this before?

In Norway, there is a long and distinguished tradition of brass and wind band playing. Almost every child school had its own band, in addition to similar adults’ ‘musikkkorps’. These amateur ensembles perform a vital role in helping to ensure that musical life, particularly in rural communities continues to flourish. The band repertoire ranges from popular music to transcriptions of the classics.
Yngve Slettholm has charted a different course and has proved that a neoclassical style of writing is not a prerequisite when writing for these ensembles. Slettholm has an impressive worklist which includes a substantial body of music for both such bands and different types of wind ensembles.

The title ‘Deja vu’ comes from a poem by the Norwegian poet Paal Brekke. Many composers in the past have drawn their inspiration from the other art forms. But, the work is not merely a musical narration of the text. The poem is more of a source of inspiration, which ignites the initial musical ideas. The poem is printed on the very last page of the score, as the music is not a comment on the poem itself, but explores some of the sensations presented in the text. The poem thus functions as a kind of ‘echo’ of the music and acts as a key to a deeper understanding of the ideas behind the work.
