Program Notes

The Concerto for Trumpet and Winds was composed for Dr. James Stokes, trumpet and the Wind Ensemble of Appalachian State University, Dr. John S. Ross, conductor.

The composition is a tour de force for trumpet that explores the full range, technique and expressive capabilities of the instrument and places considerable demands on the accompanying ensemble. The concerto is composed in three movements that share related thematic and harmonic content. The first movement is built of three contrasting passages that are at times bold (Drammatico), dance-like (Allegro assai) and lyrical (Flowing). The second movement (Lento) is in standard song form (ABA) that, with its lyrical, serene and introspective mood, stands in contrast to the outer movements. The third movement is a rousing dance that utilizes Latin-based rhythms and incorporates jazz influences. Only the virtuosic cadenza and a brief reference to lyrical theme of the first movement interrupt the perpetual motion of the lively finale.
