Gold­en Gate Fan­ta­sy is a “cousin” of Dance Etudes. Dur­ing my vis­it to Switzer­land in 1981, I met (the late) John Gol­land who was also hav­ing a new piece pre­miered at Fes­tliche Musik­tage Uster. John explained the brass band instru­men­ta­tion to me and encour­aged me to com­pose a piece for him and his band in Duk­in­field. I com­posed Gold­en Gate Fan­ta­sy imme­di­ate­ly upon my return home. John men­tioned that his play­ers respond­ed enthu­si­as­ti­cal­ly to evoca­tive imagery in the title of a piece, and sug­gest­ed a famous bridge in my home state of Cal­i­for­nia. That was the Gold­en Gate Bridge, and hence, not only the title, but the influ­ence upon the music.
