About the work:

Glimmerglass Fanfare is a fanfare commissioned by the Glimmerglass Opera Festival to announce the start of each performance and welcome patrons into the theater. Musically, it builds off of the same idea of mechanical repetitions with slight rhythmic shifts as the fanfare Clockworks, but this time putting the trumpets through wild and virtuosic leaps.
