SINFONIETTA FANFARE by Leos Janáček is arranged by Joel Blahník. Transcribed for Band with imagination enabling the spirit and power of the fanfare to remain with a slight change in timbre. This classic fanfare from Sinfonietta was destined to be written for Band. Originally composed in 1926 as The Soldier’s Symphony, Janáček changed the title to A Military Symphony for its Vienna premiere at a Sokol Festival. It employed Winds and Percussion more than Strings and was an example of Janáček’s finest instrumental writing. Strength and nobility remain in this rousing rendition! Concert Band.
