Fanfare - Jim Riesen

10.00

"Fanfare", for eight horns (or two quartets), was written in 2003 while I was a member of the Rollins Horn Ensemble, a community group led by Carolyn Blice, and to my pleasant surprise it was very well received. I wrote it as a fun, modern twist on stereotypical hunting horn music such as Rossini's "Le Rendezvous de Chasse". It features playful banter, inspired by horn calls, between two horn quartets, the second of which can play either offstage (open) or onstage (muted). There is even a brief cameo by a prankster known to most horn players!
