A Birthday Fanfare by William Walton (1902-1983). Brass Ensemble. For 7 C Trumpets or B-flat Trumpets, Percussion. Ceremonial fanfare. Light Concert. Medium. Score and parts. Standard Notation. Duration 0:40. Published by Winwood Music (WO.0306).
With Standard Notation. Light Concert.
This miniature fanfare was written as a 70th birthday present for Karl-Friedrich Still, the Waltons' next-door neighbour in Ischia. The autograph is just nine bars long, but in a separate note Walton writes, 'After a quick look at K's fanfare it seems a bit short. I suggest if there is time to make the adjustment in the parts that it should read thus: at the 9th [recte 8th] bar the 8th [recte 7th] bar should be repeated making 10 bars in all.' He adds a music example making it clear that the seventh bar is to be repeated. The fanfare was scored for three trumpets, four horns, and percussion, and was performed at Dr Still's guest-house, 'Wengerner Muhle', in Recklinghausen on 10 October 1981. At some point the fanfare was scored for seven trumpets and percussion and it was first heard in this form on 7 June 1982 at the Royal Albert Hall, London, played by the trumpeters of the Royal Military School, Kneller Hall, conducted by Lt-Col G. E. Evans. Oxford University Press published this version, rather than the original, in 1983.
