For my father (Halion Symphonic Orchestra)

Composed some years ago with HSO in memory of my father


What a lovely tribute. Having lost my father years ago, it brought a few tears to my old eyes. I loved the composition. Thank you for helping us remember.

A very moving piece, clearly (in the hands of someone who knows what they’re doing) HSO is very convincing… :slight_smile:


Thanks a lot Mysterium… yes this piece would be a little “summary” of the last moments of my father’s life, from the first diagnosis of the cancer, at the hope, at his strong, at his death, at our hope of life after death…

Thanks to you Shadowfax: hso has many potentials…hopefully Steinberg know it! :slight_smile:

Hi Giuseppe,

This is beautiful, well done!

I made a piece with the same title when my father died in 2007 (when you’re interested, you can find it here:


really really beautiful jazz theme… Bravo Wim! I do not why but it leads me to past melody of Keith jarrett, when he played the sax…



a beautiful tribute to your father…he would be proud.

Thanks a lot Ferencz… I appreciate your comment.
