Listen along with the score here: (36) "Initium" Concert Opener, for brass quintet by Dr. Daniel Thrower - YouTube
Initium: Concert Opener (Brass Quintet)
“Initium” is Latin for “Beginning,” most appropriate for a “Concert Opener.” Add jingle bells, and it is a perfect Christmas concert opener. Add a snare drum cadence underlying the fanfare, and it becomes a superb patriotic opener. There is even a four-measure optional vamp for a voiceover announcement. Cuts can be made according to the needs of the ensemble performing.
