Program Notes

An accomplished composer and conductor in his day, Julius Fučík wrote more than 400 marches, polkas and waltzes. Even one hundred years after his death, the patriotic themes in his music remain popular in the Czech Republic as well as throughout Europe and the U.S. Fanfare Sounds represents the highest standards of the Austrian regimental march with its stylishly dignified tempo, crisp articulations and, as an added feature, resplendent trumpeting fanfares that are brilliantly displayed through the piece.

- Program Note from publisher

Fučík's march Fanfare Sounds, Op. 278, contains all the classic elements of an Austrian regimental march: a strict martial-like tempo at approximately 110 beats per minute; a heavy ”oom-pah” quality stemming from low brass and bass drum down-beats, followed with alto voices and snare drum off-beats; trumpet fanfares appearing throughout the entirety of the march; and a lyrical yet triumphant melody present in the final strain.
