Program Notes

Fanfare for 16 Horns was commissioned by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the International Horn Society. It was first performed as a concert opener for the Hollywood Bowl. It is scored for a quartet of quartets, each group of four treated as a sort of single mega-horn as well as four polyphonically discrete voices, much as Robert Schumann did in the Konzertstück. The piece begins with an energetic, chromatic call-and-response, shifting moods and textures easily and often. It is always in motion, whether dancing or singing, sighing or strutting. Extreme virtuosity is taken for granted as an intensifying element, and it swaggers to an emphatic conclusion.
