About Five Fanfares for PMJ

In memoriam Philip Mark Jones

At London Brass’s request I have composed these pieces especially for their “in memoriam Philip Mark Jones” concert given in 2001 in London. The Fanfare is the traditional brass cliché. Philip would have found (as I do myself) an irony in my choice of this form, since his style was ‘anti-fanfare’, anti-military, and even anti-traditional, being lyrical elegant, poised and entirely personal, sometimes in a rather quirky way. I have thus tried to say something personal - and perhaps quirky - in these five short movements, in memory of the most remarkable personality I ever met in the brass fraternity, and my greatest friend. Elgar Howarth
