    Fanfare, on the horizon & reaction

    Three movements for Wind Ensemble.
    Second & Third derived from my latest Quintet although many extra colors are present.

    Wow, Gary - This quite a production! Playful, alert, very attractively quirky. I think this is the largest ensemble I've heard you work with - Really impressive results!

    Thanks for listening, Randy.
    I only work with smaller ensembles in my comp lesson, but I think I'm getting the message for larger groups.
    The largest problem I work with is to avoid too many people at the same time. This takes the clarity & tone colors out of the picture.
    It's still a matter of how much salt & pepper-or even lemon-at any one time.

    These are solid modern pieces. There is plenty of conversation for the ear here.

    Your music is always very recognizable.

    Thanks for listening, Phil.
    I don't attribute fame to myself in any way.
    Think of Composers who's style can be easily reecognized(for the most part):
    BACH, HANDEL, MOZART, BEETHOVEN, TSCHAIKOVSKY,ETC.
    I think the music reflects the person, and the person affects the music.

    Very good Gary. Those were exciting pieces and virtuosic in spots.

    The second piece was a bit hard to hear. It sounded a little muffled or far away somehow. Nonetheless it was enjoyable to listen to. Fine writing.

    Thanks for listening, Steve.
    I hadn't noticed a difference in the 2nd, but I may be too close.
    Sometimes there is trouble created by having different servers,etc.
