After over a year of hashing out the details for this piece with Sam Gustavson, it feels like a dream come true to be officially starting work on my Sonata for Trumpet and Piano! I’ve been so grateful for and humbled by the support this project has received. In total, the consortium consists of 24 trumpet players across 9 states and 2 countries/continents!
As daunting as it can be to start writing a 15~ minute piece, I’m really looking forward to beginning this journey!
The recording for Shockwave, my new piece for reed quintet, is now up on Civitasolis Reed Quintet’s YouTube channel!! A huge thank you to the Civitasolis Quintet for their wonderful performance, and for picking my piece as one of the winners of their Call for Miniatures in the first place. I thoroughly enjoyed writing the piece back in April as a distraction from everything that was going on in the world and am thrilled to see that work come to life through this recording!
