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.
Instrumentation: 2 flutes (2nd doubling piccolo), 2 oboes, 2 clarinets in B flat (2nd doubling bass clarinet), 2 bassoons (2nd doubling contra-bassoon), 4 horns in F, 2 trumpets in C, 2 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (2 players), strings.
Duration: 5 min.
