Janacek - Fanfares from Sinfonietta for Large Brass Ensemble & Timpani
Sinfonietta was originally written for a large orchestra with 25 brass players, however, this arrangement can be performed by a standard orchestral brass section. The composer was inspired to write the work after hearing a brass band perform and becoming inspired to write some fanfares himself. The work is dedicated "To the Czechoslovak Army".
Mr. Sauer has compiled the fanfares from the first and last movements of the work including the organ-like grand finale and brilliantly arranged them for a 13-piece Brass Ensemble and Timpani of advanced performers.
Instrumentation is for:
4 Trumpets in C, 4 Horns in F, 4 Trombones, Tuba & Timpani
The sample soundtrack is beautifully performed by the Vancouver Brass Orchestra directed by Dr. Robert Taylor (without Timpani).
