PROGRAM NOTES

In this short three-minute fanfare, I had one simple and concise aim - to write an expression of pure joy. In a day in age when we are surrounded by sadness and tragedy, this work seeks to shine light on the good thinks we may often forget from time-to-time. Bold and declarative statements juxtaposed with sweeping lyrical passages are sprinkled with muted brass entrances that add a sense of charm and wit to the work. While the tempo stays the same throughout, the rhythmic ideas continually compound upon each other to project a relentlessness ambition which drives all the way through.
