Tells a moving story - Fanfare Suite Album reviews

PRESS AND AIRPLAY FOR FANFARE SUITE

McEncroe's first album release for 2021, FANFARE SUITE, comprises 6 pieces that were originally scored for orchestra in 2015, now reborn with the talent of Sydney Scoring Orchestra, Stephen Williams as conductor.


The album is featured in Sonograma, who call it “an exciting rendition of Mark John McEnroe’s colorful music.”

FANFARE SUITE was also reviewed in Take Effect, who said “a symphonic poem unfolds with eloquent woodwind prowess that, without words, tells a moving story as Williams guides the ensemble in and out of cinematic textures.”

"Rearranged for a concert band, ... the setting helps illuminate a different avenue of McEncroe’s song craft that certainly runs parallel to the greatness present in his entire catalog."

The album was released on January 22, 2010, by Parma Recordings on the Navona Records label.

You can buy, download or stream it now.
