Program Notes

Trumpet Concerto No. 2 is a very demanding work that presents gratifying moments for the soloist in a variety of styles. The serene second movement opens with engaging lyrical lines over gentle harmonic areas that are alternately unassuming and pensive. This opening section ends with a clarion call from the soloist in anticipation of an ensuing segment that is quite aggressive and agitated. Over time this mood dissipates and the movement closes with an elevated line ascending over pleasant harmonies. The final movement is marked by insistent rhythmic propulsion. At times the soloist seems pitted against the other musicians on the stage. The heightened energy recedes with a cadenza that recalls earlier lyricism before quick ascending lines bring the work to a rousing conclusion.
