Hello everyone. I am planning on submitting this work soon for publication consideration, but I need a little help and advice from you. The questions are simply: how does it look overall and does everything simply work and make since? Some of the other concerns I have are what do you all think about the crash-choke in mea. 43, and there are several instances where the rhythms are 2 against 3 in the brass verses the percussion (for example, measures: 25, 42, 46, 55, etc.) The desire effect was to cause tension and momentum. Does this work for all of you? I was just wondering your thoughts and comments before I sent this one in. If I get this one published it will be my 5th one this year, a record for me, but since I am trying a new publisher who specializes in fanfares I want to have this one just right for them before I send it in.
The work is called "Fanfare for Earth" and scored for brass (4 trumpets, 3 horns, 2 trombones, 1 bass trombone, 2 euphoniums, and 2 tubas,) and percussion (3 players: timpani, crash and suspended cymbals, and tam tam and bass drum.) Thank you so much!
