  • Larsen, Libby

    Fanfare for the Women [trumpet in C]

    20th Century (1993). American composer Libby Larsen. Written to celebrate the opening of the University of Minnesota Women's Sports Pavilion. At the premiere the trumpet soloist stood alone, in the centre of the basketball court. The music is composed tocreate layers of tonality which overlap in space, especially in a vast space with a long acoustic decay, and it was extraordinary to watch and hear this fine musician as she spun the sound into space and time. At the end of the ceremony, the manuscript was placed in a time capsule and sealed in the cornerstone of the building. -the composer
