Program Note

At the University of Southern Maine, we have an ensemble that is dedicated to writing and playing new music each term. One term we had a small chamber orchestra, 4 strings, 3 woodwinds, 5 brass, and a piano. I wrote a short fanfare for this concert which was later re-worked for full symphony orchestra.

This wild fanfare uses a small selection of pitches and rhythms and yet with careful attention to details, such as dynamics and articulations, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
