Fanfare for the Forgotten Empire for Brass Ensemble and Percussion

Gomez, Alice



Alice Gomez writes, "Fanfare for the Forgotten Empire pays homage to the ancient civilizations of Mexico. Brass and percussion instruments were selected for this composition because of their similarity to indigenous instruments of the Aztec and Maya. Horns made from hollowed out tree trunks, carved wooden drums and xylophones made of slabs of stone were all musical instruments commonly found in these cultures."

Solo Parts Included: Horns 1-4, Trumpets 1-4, Trombones 1-3, Tuba, Timpani, Percussion (Gong, Xylophone)
