FANFARE FOR TRUMPETS is a study of nine short melodic snippits presented separately in echo, traded between two trumpet quartets and a flugelhorn quartet, developed, fragmented and piled up on top of one another in this most unusual and fascinating composition. The piece is a challenge in counting, style, and dynamics for the players, and a crowd pleaser that easily holds the audience's attention.
