This is a piece I wrote for myself, since I already wrote one for my brother. This is the second of a possible concerto using the the Metamorphosis I posted earlier. I still need to compose a middle slow movement, but that will come when the mood strikes.
This is a challenge to the trumpet player because of the tonguing, finger technique and range. It was written for C trumpet and takes the trumpet up to a high concert 'C'. And yes, I can play the piece.
This was realized entirely in Finale 2014. I do a little tweaking of the controls (equalization) in the Aria engine for both the trumpet and the piano to give a more realistic sound to each.
