Ecstatic Fanfare is based on music from movement I of my Ecstatic Waters. One day in May, 2012, I mentioned to my wife (conductor Verena Mösenbichler-Bryant) that it might be fun to take the soaring, heroic tutti music from that earlier work and turn it into a short fanfare “someday.” She goaded me into doing it immediately, and so in a panicked three-day composing frenzy, I created this new work, which was premiered by Johann Mösenbichler with the Polizeiorchester Bayern just three short weeks later, followed immediately by my wife conducting it with the World Youth Wind Orchestra Project at the Mid Europe festival in July, 2012.

Unlike its source music, this fanfare does not require any electronic elements!


26 June 26 2012, Polizeiorchester Bayern, Johann Moesenbichler, conductor
14 July 14th 2012, World Youth Wind Ensemble Project, Verena Moesenbichler, conductor
