2007 (appx. 4’)
This short work for unaccompanied trumpet explores the more lyrical side of the instrument as well as some of the techniques it can achieve that take it away from the conventional range of timbres we associate with it while retaining a keen sense of beauty and the exotic. A melodic line exists throughout, though this is broken by passages of a more virtuosic nature, which, while interjecting, never disturb the intended flow of the music.
