Program Notes

The fanfare is divided into the three parts, a percussion introduction and large arpeggiated chord that repeats three times before leading into the fanfare motif of the work, which is the rapidly repeating notes in the trumpets. This fanfare reaches its climax and then diminuendos into the second section of the work. This second section is characteristically contrasting and is much more lyrical in nature. The music develops into a grandiose tutti brass section that is briefly interrupted with a return to the lyricism immediately before but then re-enters the grand style with the French horns and trombones, which bring us to the final section of the piece, a recapitulation of the fanfare motif from the beginning in the trumpets. The trumpet lines slowly deviate from each other before bringing the piece to a large and dramatic closing.

For the Central California Youth Wind Ensemble.
