Weait - Fanfare for Arthur Frackenpohl (0'39) PDF

Performing score for Weait - Fanfare for Arthur Frackenpohl for 4 trumpets
SKU: 1402-pdf

I've re-titled the canonic fanfare to honor my college harmony teacher and distinguished American composer Arthur Frackenpohl on his 90th birthday in 2014. On receiving the score Dr. Frackenpohl, ever the wonderful teacher, reminded me that the piece was not a strict canon! The piece can be played on B-flat or C trumpets. The music is the same - unchanged from the original and now superseded title!

A short work was composed for a group of high-school aged double reed players to rehearse with limited time and perform at a woodwind clinic. Rhythmically the parts use only quarter and eighth notes in cut time, but with a liberal scattering of rests within measures. The ranges are moderate for 2 oboes and 2 bassoons.
