Program Notes

The Fanfare After Seventeenth Century Dances was commissioned by the 1965 Ojai Music Festival, Ingolf Dahl, director. It was the opening piece of the first concert, an evening outdoor program for winds. A comparison with the original dances will reveal the extent of recomposition: alternating dance sections, transpositions, shortened and extended meters, displaced octaves, overlapping harmonies, added counterpoints -- all to create a self-contained, closed form. In other words, I continued the long tradition of parody composition.
