It's been awhile since I posted to this forum. I took a sabatical from here, things just got too crazy.
Here I offer a new work that I wrote for Trumpet and Orchestra called (oddly enough): Trumpet Concerto. It is in the French style similar to the studies of Charlier for trumpet students. Any accomplished trumpet player will probably know these studies for trumpet by Charlier.
The piece is in three movements:
MM I - Elegy (dedicated to Harry Herforth, my trumpet teacher)
MM II - Lament (based on the idea of a old woman lamenting her age and remembering her spry youth)
MM III - Fantasy (as the title suggest a flight of fancy.)
All were originally written for Trumpet and Piano. I thought it would be fun to orchestrate them for full orchestra and soloist. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed composing these movements.
