Additional info/contents The Marsch Badens Stern is now available for the first time in an arrangement for wind orchestra about 100 years after its creation. Dedicated to Grand Duke Friedrich von Baden, who resided in Karlsuhe/Baden.

For Thorsten Reinau, the arrangement of this march is a special affair of the heart, as it originates from this culturally significant area of Germany, where he began to make music at the age of eight, and where there are still many friendly connections today. Roland Eberle, who commissioned Reinau to reappraise the history of Remchingen, not far from Pforzheim, starting with the impressive castle and the life on it, in a sound picture. So Hermann Sonnet was noticed, the search was for further works by him and there one found the march of Baden's star. More than one hundred years after the dedication event, the march is now available for the first time in wind music arrangement, also as a lovable confession of the composer and arranger Thorsten Reinau to his homeland Baden.

Programme notes: additional text

The March of Baden's Star - dedicated to Sr. Royal Highness Grand Duke Friedrich von Baden in deep reverence on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of government - can be seen in a two-handed piano edition. This has been published by the music shop Franz Müller in Karlsruhe. The title page is marked by the portrait of the government jubilee, moulded into a six-pointed star, and next to it is a clearly legible "Officieller Jubiläumsfest - Marsch" (Official Jubilee Festival - March). Remarkable is certainly the reference "Approved and accepted according to cabinet decree". This clearly expresses that the dedication composition was also accepted by the Grand Duke and thus, so to speak, approved. For Hermann Sonnet, Baden's Stern was not only an honourable commission, but also otherwise a great gain, as he earned him a scholarship lasting several years. Otherwise, of course, there is practically nothing more to be learned about the impact of this march. We don't know whether the piano edition - for the arrangement the original comes from the Landesarchiv in Baden-Baden - was a sales success, nor do we know anything about arrangements for orchestra or even brass music.

The dedicatee
Grand Duke Friedrich I of Baden has earned this dedication, so to speak, because under his reign Baden became a modern, progressive country. The Grand Duke was born on 9 September 1826 in Karlsruhe. He died on 28 September 1907 on the island of Mainau, which he had acquired for the Baden Princely House in 1853. Because of his brother's incurable illness, Friedrich I. was already regent in his place from 1852 to 1856, and from 1856 until his death he headed the state of Baden as Grand Duke. Under his reign, the up-and-coming Mannheim became a centre of the local industry, as he had the waterways and the railway network expanded to meet the requirements of industrialisation. The ruler, considered educated and cultivated, laid the foundations for economic prosperity in southwestern Germany. Frederick I was also considered a patron of the arts at an early age. The establishment of the Grand Ducal Baden Art School in 1854 goes back to his initiative. In 1902, the Technical University of Karlsruhe received its name as "Friedericiana". The fact that Grand Duke Friedrich I. was a supporter of the Prussian King Wilhelm I., who was appointed the first emperor, was probably not only due to political reasons, Emperor Wilhelm I. was his father-in-law and that Grand Duke Friedrich composed the parade march Hochherzog Friedrich with the inclusion of the national anthem for his Leib Grenadier Regiment No. 109, stationed in Karlsruhe, by the most important military kapellmeister of Baden, Adolf Boettge.
