|An American Fanfare (V.123)
Composed for the opening of the new concert hall at the John Cali School of Music at Montclair University (NJ). Refered to as 'Copland with a twist', An American Fanfare uses elements of the 'noble slow' fanfare style, juxtaposed with a faster, bitingly dissonant sound. A softer, more intimate middle section develops the themes which recombine in a rousing conclusion which is less recapitulation than evolved result.
