R. Christopher Teichler, Composer

Celebration Fanfare

- Chamber ($12 for Print Version, $8 for E-Delivery)

Trumpet Sextet, commissioned by the Wheaton College Conservatory of Music in honor of Dr. Terry Schwartz.

Contrapunctus Saxophonus

- Chamber ($50 for Print Version, $35 for E-Delivery)

The four movements are each composed with a separate type of contrapuntal writing, with the name of each movement describing the techniques used. “Lyrical” features a free contrapuntal style. “Chorale” uses a hymn-like style; the texture is more homophonic but the harmonies change quickly enough that a polyphonic sound is also present. “Invention” follows the tradition of a Bach two-part invention, while “Reflection” uses symmetry and interval inversion to create a contrapuntal texture.

Fanfare Jubiloso

- Chamber ($8 for Print Version, $6 for E-Delivery)
Trumpet duet, commissioned by Brian Reichenbach.

Prayer and Proclamation

- Brass Quintet ($25 for Print Version, $20 for E-Delivery)

The "Prayer" is a quiet and reflective section, showing the more expressive qualities of the brass instruments. The "Proclamation" demonstrates more typical idiomatic brass writing, with fanfare figures throughout. The two contrasting sections can be performed independently or together.
