Background on

Concert Fanfare for Orchestra

CFFO began its life as the trailer music for the film, "Fantastic Animation Festival", a 1978 theatrical compilation of classic and award-winning animated shorts such as "Bambi Meets Godzilla". The first 30 seconds of the Fanfare were also used as the opening title sequence for the film.

In 1992, I revisited the work and rescored it for full orchestra, rather than a small studio orchestra. As I began working with synthesizers to produce orchestral sounds, this piece was one of the first to be synthesized.
This is a later recording, made after I acquired more and better sounds and computer programs.
In 2002, the Fanfare was awarded First Prize in the Creative Labs Soundfont contest. All prizes awarded to me were donated to the Tujunga High School music department in Tujunga, California.
Concert Fanfare for Orchestra has been recorded by Robert Winstin and the Kiev Philharmonic for inclusion in Volume 10 of Masterworks of the New Era from ERMMedia. The CD was released in April,  2007.

There are three pieces of music that I will always be most proud of. This fanfare, "Dance", and "Thoughts, Conflicts...".
