I Hear Sweet Music
Composed by Andrea S. Klouse
Series Editor: Rebecca Rottsolk
Catalog number: AMP 0615
Performing groups are encouraged to allow factors (e.g., the uniqueness of the physical concert site, resonant acoustical opportunities, and the creativity of the director/performers) to dictate the boundaries for the fanfare section.
* Try having opening performers (brass and vocal) begin from positions of polyphonic significance: balconies, aisles and so on. Even a well-staged spot from within the audience can be a fresh and exciting way to begin the concert!
* If possible, have the opening brass "call" begin from behind the general audience, or from a hidden position, and direct the sound diagonally across the audience. A "surround-sound" experience can also be effective; all choices should be guided by the limits of musicality and artistry.
* Note: Brass players have more latitude to try distant or hidden fanfare stations; soli voices should remain local, for ease in stepping back to the choir. Instead of just a few soli voices, it is possible for an entire choir to participate in the fanfares.
* An additional option for performance could be to skip the fanfare entirely.
