Program Notes

Triptych for Trumpet and Trombone was written in memory of Eric Rombach-Kendall and made possible by a consortium of several universities and colleges. Eric was a great champion of new music and would often commission composers to write music for the medium he so loved as a musician and educator, namely the band and wind ensemble. It was Glen Adsit who approached me with the idea of composing this piece based on the several commissions I did for Eric. My Chronicles for solo trumpet and wind ensemble, written for Philip Smith, principal trumpet in the New York Philharmonic and later Illuminations for trombone and wind ensemble written for New York Philharmonic principal trombone Joseph Alessi. [sic] Eric premiered and recorded both pieces with the mentioned soloists. I should also add that on the Chronicles recording, Joe Alessi was asked to participate and that led to the writing of my Fandango for trumpet, trombone and band. This is how I met Eric many years ago, which soon led to a lasting and cherished friendship. So Glen's idea of having me write a piece for this combination makes perfect sense not only as a memorial to Eric but also as a tribute to his vision.

The first movement, Preamble, is written for trumpet and wind ensemble; movement two, Lament, for trombone and wind ensemble; and the last movement, Dialogues, for both solo instruments and wind ensemble.
