Program Notes

James Curnow’s Fanfare and Flourishes was composed in 1991 and features a prominent musical theme from Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s Te Deum. As the title suggests, an exciting fanfare opens the piece, giving way to renaissance inspired melodies that feature multiple sections of the ensemble in turn.
