Program Notes

This interesting and long-popular feature for solo trumpet, trombone and tuba includes a variety of rhythms, harmonic content, melodic lines, and dynamics. The work has been compared to Kurt Weill's Threepenny Opera, including a sense of sarcasm throughout. The first movement, Vintage Fox Trot, begins with trio alone exchanging technical and legato parts. The calm middle movement, Lullaby, is followed by Greek Dance, a fast 7/8 movement which provides an energetic, climactic conclusion.
