Abstract

For Brass and Percussion, on "Masterworks of the New Era", Vol.5, ERM 6707 [CD] (UPC Code: 607221-670724): world première recording with the Kiev Philharmonic Orchestra / Robert Ian Winstin; recorded in the Philharmonic Hall of Ukraine, Kiev (September, 2004). Editions de la Rue Margot (USA) Cat. No. ERM 6707. ISMN M-7200-4171-1. ASCAP Title Code: 360982396. Recording supported by the Foundation for New Music (USA); ca.50 secs.

This brief fanfare is scored for 4 trumpets, 4 horns, 3 trombones + tuba, 2 sets of timpani, plus percussion – comprising bass drum, snare drum, suspended cymbals and 2 tam-tams. The 2 sets of timpani are ideally to be positioned at either side of the stage, with the rest of the brass stretching across the front of the stage, in an arc (with percussion behind). Finally, the 2 sets of 2 trumpeters are positioned on each side of the auditorium balcony (opposite and facing the stage) – for maximum spatial effect.

Ideal duration is ca. 1'15" to 1'30"
