The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra is offering free digital downloads of the five commissioned anniversary fanfares performed last season to celebrate Paavo Jäarvi’s final season with the orchestra and the 50th anniversary of Cincinnati public radio station WGUC. The downloads, available at the CSO website, will be introduced at the rate of one new download per week; the first download on September 25 was Jonathan Bailey Holland’s The Party Starter. The other four fanfares are Jörg Widmann’s Souvenir bavarois (“Remembering Bavaria”), Stewart Goodyear’s Count Up, Charles Coleman’s P.J. Fanfare, and Erkki-Sven Tüür’s Fireflower.
