The Greek mythology relates us how the young hero Theseus kills the monster Minotaur, escapes from the Knossos labyrinth thanks to Ariadne's thread and finally marries the Queen of the Amazons. This story inspired the young Dutch composer Alex Poelman (Arnhem, 1981) to write a rather short but very original and fascinating work for symphonic band.
