Program Notes

Fanfare and Choral is grandiose in style and conception. Commissioned by the St. Olaf Band, USA, in 1966, it was premiered at the Bergen International Festival that same year. The main elements are the introductory fanfare, motif, and a choral. They are separated by a succession of interludes, one of whicha passage for percussion solo. Finally, fanfare, choral and interludes are woven into a resounding display of orchestral firework The music is tonal/freetonal, and the choral runs through all the twelve tones of the chromatic scale.
