Product details

The term "jet-stream" is used to describe fast-flowing, relatively narrow currents of air and is also sometimes applied to fast moving ocean currents. In using the same term for this orchestral fanfare I am suggesting musical notions of swirling, fast-flowing passages, of turbulent energy and perhaps also the exhilaration of motion itself.

As befits a fanfare, the piece begins with passages dominated by brass and percussion which feature prominently throughout. A second section begins with harp and interleaved woodwind lines and a much slower descending counter melody. The high woodwinds, which initially take up the fanfare theme in this section, are later subsumed by the brass and then the whole orchestra, bringing the piece to a huge climax. The following reflective section allows a brief moment of contemplation before the material plunges headlong into the brass figures heard at the start of the work.
