Program Notes

An impressive and demanding composition for mature bands by a talented Australian composer and military band conductor. Requires good players in all sections, but it is well worth the effort. The inspiring slow section includes solos for oboe, clarinet, horn, trumpet and euphonium as well as some challenging parts for the mallet percussion players. Every section of the band has plenty to keep them challenged and involved.

Program Note by publisher


Graham Lloyd is a major figure in Australian band music, having served as a band officer in the Australian army and air force, and eventually becoming the Commanding Officer of the Defense Force School of Music in Melbourne, Victoria. Fanfare for Freedom is his dedication to the innate spirit that exists within all of us: the spirit of freedom. The work begins with a declamatory fanfare that leads to the main theme, which is treated with flair, then in a reflective mood, and finally in a restatement of the opening fanfare.
