  • commissioned by the Crane Symphony Orchestra

Clarion Call was commissioned by the Crane Symphony Orchestra for its Fall 2008 tour.  Conductor Chris Lanz asked for a short piece that would work well as a concert opener (i.e. loud, fast, and attention-grabbing), but which would be more substantial than just a fanfare.  The main theme of Clarion Call is indeed an angular fanfare, which reappears in various guises throughout the piece for a sense of unity.  Two additional themes are juxtaposed against the main theme, for contrast and variety.
