Music Composers Unite!
"Fanfare for Earth" for Brass and Percussion. I have been working on a series of fanfares here lately. In the video, "Fanfare for Earth" ends at around 3'30" then "Festiva Fanfare" begins. So feel free to stop listening after the first fanfare ends since I already posted Festiva Fanfare on the forum.
Nice horn sounds.
Just listened to both Rodney :-)
I'm not particularly keen on dominant brass orchestral works but I must say that the power behind these two pieces really appealed to me, especially Festiva Fanfare, probably because I found the theme easier to engage with, thus more pleasing for a first listen, but that's just a matter of personal taste ... Very well written scores !
Oh ... And I don't find the Garritan horns sooooooo bad as to attempt to camouflage them with excessive reverb !! Granted, you'll be over the moon with your Cinebrass core & pro purchases ;-)
I liked the pieces. I would love to be able to write a fanfare that is fresh and original, but between Copland, the Olympics theme and the 20th Century Fox fanfare, I feel like the book is pretty much finished on fanfares. I mean, does it HAVE to be trumpets? (Maybe a fanfare for bagpipes, huh? It would be a refreshing change from Amazing Grace).
