About this Piece
This piece was written to educate young brass players about the brass playing traditions in the Czech Republic. During the days of the Austro-Hungarian empire, the court in Prague required ceremonial/fanfare music from their Imperial Guild Trumpet members, which has created a rich repertoire of this music. During the years of occupation following World War II, nationalist chorales became an important genre in Czechoslovakia, and this style made its way into brass writing. Fanfare Lukáš makes use of these types of brass playing – written in a similar style to the Czech composer Zdenek Lukáš – by using contrasting sections that incorporate accents and slur markings. With this idea in mind, I hope you enjoy performing Fanfare Lukáš.
