Commissioned for Nishinomiya City Wind Orchestra's 50th anniversary.
"Ballad" refers to a kind of European folk song known since the Middle Ages, having elements of dramatic conversation and lyrical poetry. It became a general term for narrative song in the 14th century, and Ballade in the 19th century was a genre of instrumental music in the narrative style. I composed this work with an image of a fictitious hero, hence the title. The work is roughly divided into five parts. The appealing solo line, the 4th and 5th disjunct-motion motifs rising steadily, the rapid-rhythm style sounding like a mixture of Western "Tarantella" and Korean traditional "Jajinmori Jangdan", and the lyrical comfort melody essentially comprise the music.
