I've been asked to compose a prelude for a concert we are playing next February (2016). We will be performing the Stravinsky Octet for Winds. I borrowed 9 motes from one of the main themes of the Octet to create the bulk of this work. The fanfare is modeled after Stravinsky's Fanfare for a New Theater written to commemorate the Opening of the Lincoln Center Theater. No music was stolen, I just modeled the ideas and created my own work. I intended this to be a quiet unassuming prelude. I borrowed a bit from the Rite of Spring which I think you may catch a few times in the piece.
