This Little Suite would be great as a Concert opener or Encore. Each movement is expressive, and the first and last movements allow the players to perform with brightness and bravura. They contain melodic twists and turns to stretch the technique, and to allow Trumpeter and Pianist alike to create and communicate great ensemble playing.There are 3 movements:
Morning Workout, mainly in Gminor/Eflat major, with touches of the Pentatonic.
Afternoon Relaxation is a gentle movement with some unequal phrase lengths, and some surprising harmonic implications.
Evening Concert begins with a solo fanfare, leading straight into the opening theme. It then changes mood (key of E flat major) with an elongated version of the first theme. The opening mood then returns, and leads to a final flourish.
