Renowned Belgian composer Kevin Houben composed “Ride” for the “Fanfare ‘Bereden Wapens’“. This orchestra originated after drastic reorganisations and cutbacks within Defense in 2011 and 2012, including in the military music armed forces. The thought behind the composition “Ride” is the signal “forward”. The signal “Forward” is part of a military memorial ceremony, as the sign to close off a sad or dark period, and to go on with renewed force. “Ride” is also a command for horses to go forward. Appropriate, as the “Fanfare ‘Bereden Wapens’”, part of the regiment Huzaren van Boreel, is part of the Cavalry. When the Fanfarekorps Koninklijke Landmacht ‘Bereden Wapens’ was abrogated, this was an extremely sad and radical moment for the orchestra members. The “Fanfare ‘Bereden Wapens’“ announces the dawn of a new period and picks up again with an effervescent and splashing composition: “Ride”.
