I wrote this fanfare for the opening ceremony of Woodford Festival 2014/15, but they ended up not using it! We did eventually use it as a parade piece and then for the closing Fire Event... phew! The name is due to the fact that on Bb valve brass instruments, the whole piece is played with only second valve, thus it could be called "Middle Finger Fanfare", but I decided against that! And ironically, I recorded it only on slide instruments, thus it could be called "2 Position Fanfare", which doesn't have a great ring to it either. Regardless, its positional and valvey simplicity made it accessible to all the players (many of whom were novice), despite its otherwise complexity. To get the sheet music for it, go to:
