Fanfare from La Peri

The Fanfare from La Peri was written in 1912 by French composer Paul Dukas, who championed modern music of the time, joining noted composers revolting against artistic formalism. Dukas wrote this fanfare for his ballet La Peri, and scored it for 3 trumpets, 4 horns, 3 trombones and tuba. The Fanfare holds a unique place in the brass ensemble repertoire and is likely one of the most notable brass fanfares of the past century. (Source: JRO)
