A Western Fanfare (brass quintet)
SMC SU474/ HL 3776398
"Western Fanfare" for Brass Quintet is dedicated to the Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, California, which commissioned the work in honor ot their fiftieth anniversary celebrations. The fanfare is a bright, bold and uplifting work, reflecting the beauty and excitement of Santa Barbara's famous music festival. Although it begins and ends with sonorous low brass and high trumpet flourishes, the middle section of the work is a lilting waltz. It is also availablein the composer's version for brass choir with optional percussion (SU475).
