1267 Fanfare St. Antoni
M+
3:50
$24.00
Fanfare St. Antoni makes a stirring opener for concerts and events. It was commissioned in 2016 by Timothy M. Smith in celebration of his tenth season conducting the Contra Costa Chamber Orchestra in the San Francisco Bay Area. The music subtly adapts and incorporates elements from the famous Chorale St. Antoni on which Johannes Brahms' Variations on a Theme of Haydn is based.
Scored for 3 Bb trumpets, 4 horns, 2 trombones, bass trombone, tuba, timpani, triangle, tenor drum, bass drum, cymbals, and tam-tam.

12 (or 10) Brass (plus opt. Organ and opt. percussion)

$40.00
A stirring concert fanfare for any big point in a concert or event. Four trumpets (4th trumpet doubles on piccolo trumpet), 2 horns (can be doubled to good effect), 2 trombones, bass trombone, and tuba. Organ part is optional, but a great addition. Optional percussion includes 2 timpani, glock, suspended cymbal, snare drum, bass drum, and piatti.
Rejoice! was performed in the Dallas Symphony Orchestra's Big Brassy Christmas concert in 2013. The shorter versions (below) were used in advance to promote that concert. Then in 2014, recordings of the 2013 performance were used in videos that promoted the 2014 Big Brassy Christmas. View these videos HERE and HERE. Rejoice! is not a Christmas work, but since it works for almost any 'big' occasion, it certainly works well at Christmas. If shorter versions are desired, use the specially prepared shorter versions below (#1199).
