"Fanfare for the Patriot" Premieres at 9/11 Anniversary Concert

Sep 12, 2016

The Southern California Brass Consortium (Hector Salazar, conductor) premiered Maffe's ode to the armed forces, "Fanfare for the Patriot," at their 9/11 anniversary concert on Sunday.

The reverent piece opens with an offstage trumpet solo, a bugle-like melody of the characteristic military fourths and fifths. The piece develops to the whole band and ends with a warm and hopeful tonality—for love of country.
