Program Notes

The piece is a two-minute fanfare for orchestral brass and percussion, written in honor of Karel Husa on the occasion of his passing. All of its material is derived from his classic work Music for Prague 1968.

Interestingly, the opening motive of that piece and of this fanfare is related to Karel's last name as follows:

H--is the German letter for our note "B"
U--does not translate to a musical note
S--is the German letter for Es, or our Eb
A--the musical note A

So that relationship B-Eb-A is transposed in the opening solo of "Prague" up a third to D-F#-C, and that same motive begins this fanfare.
