When Jan Van der Roost composed "Spartacus", he had no explicit intention of writing programmatic music, which is why no particular story is pursued or expressed in the composition. But the listener will recognize the impressive atmosphere of the great monumental films like Ben Hur, Quo Vadis and Spartacus. From a musical-technical point of view, Spartacus has a rather complicated score, which places high demands on all performers, both in terms of virtuosity and rhythm. Between two dynamic and impressive corner sections, the middle section creates a calm atmosphere.
