Fanfare and Fantasy © 2006 by Gary A. Edwards 208 699-0848

Fanfare and Fantasy was commissioned by the Coeur d’Alene Youth Symphony Orchestra for a performance premiere in the spring of 2007. The piece begins with melody A in 6 8 with a fanfare begun by the French horns echoed by trumpets repeated by trombones, and finally the strings and other instruments enter and bring this A melody to a climax.

Melody B enters and is a romantic theme played first by strings with a unique time signature of 6/8 over 3/4 time signature. The woodwinds repeat theme B with string accompaniment.

Melody C begins with a Clarinet solo playing a complex version of Melody C. Then the oboe begins a simpler variation of the C melody with the bassoon playing snare playing a variation. Meanwhile the snare drums play a mysterious middle eastern beat and the accompanying chords remain in g minor despite the melodic chord changes. The French horns add a new variation to the repeat of the clarinet and oboe melodies and the theme slows down and ends in major key. The piece ends with an abbreviated version of Theme A.
