V : an orchestral fanfare / Carl Vine

Library shelf no. Q 784.2/VIN 7 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

I have always wanted to title a work using a single letter. The V ('vee') of this title refers to the Roman numeral, and hence to the five minute duration of this little orchestral fanfare. Five minutes of music, even for orchestra, doesn't seem to warrant a much longer title, nor, for that matter, a longer program note.
