Program Notes

The title of DF-XXXVII Fanfare (2018) is derived from the first initial of Dennis Fisher’s first and last names (DF), and the roman numeral for the number of years Fisher has served on faculty at the University of North Texas (thirty-seven). The work is dedicated to Fisher on the occasion of his retirement from this institution.

Yurko says of his composition:

What an honor it has been for me to know Dennis Fisher. Dennis has performed and recorded my wind band music for many years with the University of North Texas Symphonic Band, as well as many honor bands across the United States. Dennis is, and always will be, an outstanding conductor, educator and friend. He understands the composer in ways that others do not. He wants the performance of the music to reflect each composer’s inner soul.

DF-XXXVII Fanfare is a gift to Dennis for his many performances of my music. Thank you, Dennis, it has always, always been a pleasure to work with you. Two composers once stated, “A splendid time is guaranteed for all.” And, knowing Dennis, it certainly has been.
