Canadian composer and trumpeter Alan Matheson's Evening Fanfare for Four Trumpets is bold and reflective. It is appropriate for moderately advanced performers, not having any difficult range, endurance or technical challenges.

Here is what composer Alan Matheson says about his work:

"Evening Fanfare" was composed in 2006 for a performance I did with trumpeter/pianist Walter Martella at the Texada Island Jazz Festival. The organizers of the festival asked me and Walter to perform an opening fanfare for the evening performances up above the former quarry where the jazz festival concerts were to take place. The quarry had a remarkable echo and the piece was designed to take advantage of this feature.

I revised the fanfare in 2010 for four trumpets on the occasion of the dedication and reopening of the newly refurbished Ray Barnett Recital Hall at the University of British Columbia’s School of Music. In the four trumpet version the echo effect of the Texada Island quarry is simulated by the added trumpet parts as well as providing a richer harmonic texture. This fanfare is meant to make use of the bold colour of the trumpets in a reflective melodic setting.
