FRAGMENTS OF A PROMENADE (2018)

a fanfare for brass quintet

Duration: ca. 45"

Composed for the Ithaca College Symphony Orchestra brass section to precede the ICSO's performance of Modest Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition

PROGRAM NOTES:

 
I composed Fragments of a Promenade (2018) for the Ithaca College Symphony Orchestra to precede their performance of Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. The brief fanfare is a celebration of Mussorgsky’s masterwork, quoting and reworking material from the suite’s opening “Promenade.” As I am entering my last semester at Ithaca College, the piece also became somewhat of a tribute to the Ithaca College Symphony Orchestra and its brass section, of which I am an alumnus.
