    Petite Fanfare Quebecoise [211.01]

    21st Century. A rousing fanfare for moderately advanced Brass Quintet by Canadian composer/trombonist, Nicholas Francis. This work uses a well known Quebeciose Folk Song. - the publisher

    This is music for music's sake, a small fanfare full of the joy and pleasure that playing in a brass quintet brings with it. It derives its thematic material from the well-known Quebec folk song V'la l'bon vent, a tune which is sung in a variety of forms in virtually every region of the province. At the time I must have had in mind the magnificent brass fanfares of Montreal composer Jacques Hetu, for the title is certain to put one in mind of his Petite Fanfare pour Lanaudiere. - the composer

    Features a distinctive pyramid effect using a short rhythmic fragments, frequent use of the major second interval and advanced rhythmic challenges for the ensemble. Trombone occasionally plays in tenor clef. -pc
