In 2002 I was approached by someone with a score, written in Maastricht juli 1940 by P. Lemaire. He told me that he was related to P. Lemaire and that this piece was intended for a marching band but was never performed. He asked me if I could play the score using my computer music tools. After 2 sessions of manually entering the score in a program (with help of a neighbour of this person) we recorded a CD of the computer performance of "Extase" exactly 62 years after it was written. 



  • 01 Extase
  • 02 Extase 2002 version 1

1. When the CD was finished, I first handed him an alternative 2002 version as a practical joke :-).
