An accomplished composer and conductor in his day, Julius Fucik wrote more than 400 marches, polkas and waltzes. Even one hundred years after his death, the patriotic themes in his music remain popular in the Czech Republic as well as throughout Europe and the US. Fanfare Sounds represents the highest standards of the Austrian regimental march with its stylishly dignified tempo, crisp articulations and, as an added feature, resplendent trumpeting fanfares that are brilliantly displayed through the piece.

The music of A Golden Legacy reflects both the joy and reverence many of us feel in our role as transmitters of the band tradition. The legacy in the title refers to the long-lasting impact directors have on students' lives. This piece alternates between two themes - the first is a majestic fanfare that develops into a purposeful and resolute march; the second theme is a reverent hymnlike chorale that undergoes several variations, with the last one erupting into a festive musical celebration for an exuberant finish.

This ragtime masterpiece was composed in 1907 and is named after the beautiful variegated southern flower. What make this particular work stand out from other ragtime pieces is the oddity of its structure, rhythm, and melody, which could be the result of the collaboration of these two composers. The first two strains were written by Louis Chauvin, a brilliant young pianist from St. Louis, and that last two strains were composed by the master, Scott Joplin. The opening has a decidedly melancholy air about it that could serve as a premonition of Chauvin's early death at the age of 27. The work then concludes with a more upbeat feeling as the musical bouquet is tied together through the genius of Scott Joplin. A truly unique and appealing ragtime work.

This fanfare is a short musical travelogue of one of the composer's favorite interstates, I-77, as it weaves through the beautiful Appalachian Mountains. The music motors along at a steady pace as changing landscapes of sound approach, come into view, and pass into the distance - then another musical vista appears on the horizon. The underlying rhythms, incessant and determined, prove it's not the destination that's important but the journey.

This vivid fanfare features rousing brass motives, dynamic woodwind flourishes and active percussion, all combining to create an explosive concert opening statement. Beginning quietly, the action builds quickly, accelerating into a spinning sonic dynamo that truly befits the title. Every section has actively rhythmic parts that keep the action moving forward. Technical demands kept at a very playable level while occasional time signature changes dart and weave throughout this musical thrill ride.

Nova Stella: New Star Fanfare is based on the chorus of the traditional English carol Nova! Nova! Ave Fit Ex Eva. The fanfare begins with three or more antiphonal brass players placed throughout the concert hall. Large percussion forces, which include optional parts, are used to help introduce the rest of the ensemble as they join in the musical celebration. Then the combined efforts of all the performers coalesce into an overwhelming expression of unbridled joy.
