Program Notes

Memories of those who have left us don't always have to be sorrowful. Celebrate the happiness and joy found in life with the exuberant Fanfare: In Memoriam. Mr. Boysen honors the life of high school student Jason Rundel, who passed in 2001. The piece sets out to celebrate Jason's memory with quotations from scouting songs, and features his instrument, alto sax, with the only solo in the piece.

- Program Note by publisher

Fanfare: In Memoriam was commissioned by the Terre Haute High School Band in loving memory of Jason Rundel, an alto saxophone player in the band who passed away in the fall of 2001. The composer writes:

As I began work on the piece, I spoke at length with both his band director, Tim Murphy, and his father, Steve, about what Jason was like as a person in the hopes that I might somehow create a strong relationship between Jason and the piece. Above all, I tried to communicate some of what I felt to be Jason’s spirit in this work. Both his father and band director stressed that the work should be fast and exciting; that Jason was a happy, upbeat, helpful, and friendly person who was quick with a joke or a smile. I hope that he would have liked this piece.
