Fanfare? (For arrival and departure)

Harrison, James

About the work

Fanfare? was written for COMA’s centre-spread music in 1998. It can be performed on most combinations of pitched instruments. Its polytonal flavour stems from the application of different clefs and transpositions to a central melodic strand. Subtitled ‘For arrival and departure’, it lasts about one minute and falls into two sections: one fast and decisive, the other slower and more contemplative.

Technical notes

The piece has three melody lines, one in treble clef, one in tenor, and one in bass. There needs to be at least one instrument per line. The parts are largely in rhythmic unison, and so a conductor may not be needed.
