Charisma was written by Louis van Dijk, a Dutch (jazz) pianist who was born on the 27th of November 1941 in Amsterdam. In 1964 he graduated cum laude from the conservatory, but he broke through as a jazz pianist with the general public, with Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans and Bud Powell as his great examples. For his oeuvre he received 4 Edisons, 19 gold records and 3 platinum records. This song, Charisma, is from the period 'Rogier van Otterlo - Thijs van Leer' and is originally a piece for piano with accompaniment of strings and flutes. It is certainly worthwhile to (as a conductor) listen to the original version online (for example on YouTube). It is a constructive composition that in this arrangement begins 'minimalist' with a brass quartet after the intro and, as a theme with variations, slowly works towards a tutti finale in which the theme and/or variations are played by several instrument groups. The 'musical sentences' are often built up in 4/4/6 phrases and should, as the score describes, be interpreted as a chorale.
