Francis, Nicholas – Petite Fanfare Quebecoise for Brass Quintet.
A rousing 4 minute fanfare for moderately advanced Brass Quintet by talented Canadian composer/Trombonist, Nicholas Francis. This work uses a well known Québeciose Folk Song to send the brass rocketing throughout the fanfare. Here is what Nick says about his work:
About the music This is music for music's sake, a small fanfare full of the joy and pleasure that playing in a brass quintet brings with it. It was written while I was a student in Montreal, and derives its thematic material from the well-known Quebec folk song V'la l'bon vent, a tune which is sung in a variety of forms in virtually every region of the province. I think that at the time I must have had in mind the magnificent brass fanfares of Montreal composer Jacques Hétu, for the title is certain to put one in mind of his Petite Fanfare pour Lanaudière. Other than that I have very little to say; here is two-and-a-half minutes of joyous music-making that oughtn't need any further excuses! -N.P.F., Vancouver, B.C., 28 November 2007"
