Quick Overview

This piece was the winner of the 2016 Texas Orchestra Directors Association Full Orchestra Composition Competition. The piece is built completely on the four notes that are first heard in the trumpets and is continually used as the basis for all of the musical language in the work. This piece explores fanfares, relative minor keys, Celtic grooves, the Dorian Mode, counterpoint, and much more all based on the four-note motif. The piece ends triumphantly with a fanfare-like return of the B theme that leads to a majestic return of the main theme and a short dramatic coda. An interesting piece for your concert full orchestra.

Listen to the premiere performance recorded by the Harrison School for the Arts Symphony Orchestra, Matthew Davis and Rob Lambert, Conductors.
