Gavin Higgins: Fanfares And Love Songs (Score/Parts)

Books | Brass Band

Publisher: Faber Music
Composer: Gavin Higgins
Format: Sheet Music | Score and Parts

Fanfares and Love Songs was commissioned by the National Children’s Brass Band of Great Britain for performance on 25th July 2009. Its three movements contrast the extrovert and lyrical qualities of the traditional brass band. The fanfare with which the work opens involves the whole cornet section. The second movement is reflective in mood, beginning somewhat pensively on muted brass, and building to an emotional climax before subsiding back to a distant pianissimo chord. The finale is a fast dance, which with a final recapitulation of the opening fanfare drives on to a breathless close.
