21st Century (2013). The kaleidoscope is a tube which can be manipulated at will to have multicolored little objects producing endless graphic drawings as a result of a shifting combination of mirrors. In fact, it's creating a fast succession of quick aleatoric sensations. These Kaleidoscopic Fanfares are a "sound transcription" of the kaleidoscope's visual effects.

The arrangement takes the melody through no less than five different keys. The final rendering of the melody features a trumpet soloist who is accompanied by a simple 3-part harmo...
Men of Harlech is a folksong from Wales. It is a stirring and bold march that shows off the power of this ensemble. It opens with 4 offstage trumpets playing some calls which moves into an onstage chorale setting of the piece. It gradually builds to a terrific ending with all 12 trumpets heralding. This piece is not too difficult (range is only to Bb) and would be appropriate for high school or college level players. 5:50
