"Prelude for an Occasion" might be described as a "curtain raiser." Its purpose is to set a mood which this Prelude does by bursting into a fanfare, always a good way to arrest attention. A quicker tempo Allegro moderato follows, comprising a short bouncing figure answered by a solid response from the lower instruments and introducing a lively solo on the clarinet, marked Giocoso (playfully, merrily). The interval of a falling 5th is important, echoes by a similar response from other instruments, which then gives way to a broad melody, played canabile (in a singing style).Rhythmic bi-play, trombone glissandi and a light-hearted obbligato, all add to the merriment. The opening fanfare returns in extended form, and a final flourish brings the Prelude to a triumphant ending.
