Program Notes

Cloudsplitter Fanfare was commissioned by the United States Air Force Band, Col. Lowell E. Graham, Commander and Conductor, and premiered in July of 1999 at the Twelfth International World Association of Symphonic Bands and Ensembles (WASBE) Conference in San Luis Obispo, California. The work is dedicated to American composer Richard Danielpour. I had the opportunity to study briefly with this incredible musician and teacher and more recently attended rehearsals and performances of several of his orchestral premieres. This work explores aspects studied in our lessons, with further exploration of dissonance, octatonic scale sets, and new approaches to rhythmic ostinatos.
