Fanfare is a short concert opener, comprised of two distinct sections. The first is a brash brass fanfare with the strings and woodwinds whirling around above the brass and percussion. The second is a quick, and hushed rhythmic section with an ostinato pushing through the sections of the orchestra while the fanfare motive attempts to enter back to the forefront. The piece closes with a recap of the first section, coming to a bold and brilliant close.
