About

Fanfare for Orchestra was commissioned as part of the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra's Composer-in-Residence programme to open a special concert to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II. This short work for large orchestra follows an A-B-A structure with the archetypal brass fanfare is framed by the "bustling crowd" analogy of the other orchestral sections with much jazz-like syncopation.
