Noten für BlasorchesterEssays for Trumpet & Wind Band
Essays for Trumpet is a four-movement suite for trumpet and wind ensemble. Each movement is written in a contrasting style, featuring a wide array of trumpet techniques. The first movement, Fanfare, begins with the solo trumpet playing lyrical lines over the ensemble. The character quickly changes, with the trumpet and ensemble trading short clarion calls. The movement ends with a flurry of activity between solo and ensemble, culminating in the final chord. Movement two, Gallop, begins with a flash, with the soloist, negotiating numerous double-tonguing hurdles. The movement races off at a presto tempo, with both soloist and ensemble trading the melody. A short interlude with a jazz flavor features the soloist before the movement races to the finish. Movement three, Ballad, showcases the lyrical side of both soloist and ensemble. The final movement, Dance, utilizes a five-part rondo form. It is highly spirited in nature, featuring lively melodies and rhythms.
