Fanfare by Jonathan Ovalle is a short work for a large percussion ensemble of 12 players. Featuring an array of melodic and non-melodic instruments, this piece is intended as a bold concert opener, similar to how a fanfare would be placed in a band or orchestral concert. Ideally suited for larger performance spaces, the intention is to fill the room with sound, enveloping the listener. The musical material is largely comprised of ostinati that create interesting textures and layers as they build and dissipate throughout the work.
