The cornet solo Friendship is built on the melody “Auld lang syne” which all is about friendship. The piece is split into three parts and together they describe a short story. In the first part of the piece the theme is played in a happy and spirited way. It describes a happy and good working friendship relation. Later in the part the music gets more aggressive and problematic. The relationship cracks and the two friends are now turned away from each other in anger.
The second part starts in a very grope and unhappy way. A memory of a good and wonderful relationship in the past comes back and at the same time a longing to get it restored. Quite soon the melody “Auld lang syne” is played in it’s fully splendor to describe the reconciliation between the two friends.
In the third part of the piece the music is very happy and describes a restored good friendship. This final part tells us this simple truth: two is better then one and together we always are stronger than alone.
In the Bible we can read about friendship and reconciliation:
Ecc. 4:12 ”Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”
Mat. 5:23-24 “…if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.”
Mar. 11:25 ”And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.”
