Composer's Notes

Asclepius (2007) Fanfare for Brass and Percussion was commissioned by Dr. Cyrus Farrehi for the grand opening of the University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center. The work was premiered June 7, 2007 by the CVC Brass and Percussion Ensemble, conducted by Emily Threinen. The title refers to Asclepius [pronunciation: as-klee’-pee-uhs], the Greek God of medicine. Using the pulse of a beating heart as a musical metaphor, the majestic fanfare celebrates men and women who devote their lives to the noble cause of medical research and healing.

-Michael Daugherty
