Spiritus Vita, stands for “Breath of Life”. The breath of life that is literally blown into instruments to be able to play beautiful wind music. Extremely rhythmic, groovy, cheerful, flashy and dancing, interspersed with long dramatic lines sometimes combined with not the most common harmonies. The spirit and the fire of life with all the ups, downs, cheerfulness, sadness, reflection, tranquility but also madness and despair. These emotions and energy are expressed in this special, colorful, rhythmic composition.
