Program Notes

I chose the title Jupiter Fanfare since the four main pitches of the opening are the same intervals from the famous last movement of Mozart’s “Jupiter” Symphony No. 41. I also used stacking perfect fourths in the buildup into the climax of the piece as a nod to the ostinato in Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity from Holst’s The Planets.
