Teaching the World to Play


Brian Balmages
Grade 3

This explosive short concert fanfare explores various sounds as they echo throughout the ensemble. Based entirely on a two-note motif, the music makes use of minimalist techniques while adding fanfare themes and an extensive percussion backdrop. The end of the work reverses the direction of the motif as the woodwinds echo each other while the brass present the final powerful statements. An incredible contemporary opener!
