In each of the four movements, the composer has tried to capture in music something of the spirit of this beautiful Swiss town, which lies on the banks of the Rhein. The first movement (Promenade) revolves around twoideas that appear in the opening bars, one in the brass and one in the woodwind. These ideas alternate until a short, lyrical bridge passage leads to a noble tune on the horns. These three elements then interplay until the opening passage brings the movement to a close. The second movement (Ballad)opens with a dreamy saxophone solo and a chordal passage forthe trombones before the main theme, a chorale, appears on the lower ha lf of the band. The tempo then begins to move forward until a change of mood is introduced with a driving, rhythmic section. This soon subsides and the chorale returns to bring the movement to a peaceful close, leading to “Scherzo,” a buoyant moto perpetuo in which short snatches of melody (most importantly one from the low clarinets) try to establish themselves. Before they can do so, a tolling bell announcesa calmer central section. The quicker music returns but the mood still changes every few bars until the central chorale returns with the original clarinet tune as an accompaniment.
