Recital, Trumpet, Hindemith
This graduate recital features a variety of contrasting works and styles. The first half features two standard solo pieces. Sonata for Trumpet, a three movement piece by Paul Hindemith, tests the soloist's endurance and poses some ensemble challenges. Legend by George Enesco is a very expressive piece, allowing the soloist to show off his or her virtuosity. The second half features a brass quintet piece and a cornet solo. Mini Overture by Witold Lutoslawski is a short but very challenging piece replete with mixed meters. Slavonic Fantasy by Carl Hohne is a very enjoyable cornet solo which demands soloistic flair with its cadenzas, lyric passages, and quick multiple-tongued sections. Through the course of the recital, I will be performing on three different instruments - Bb trumpet (Hindemith), C trumpet (Enesco and Lutoslawski), and Bb cornet (Hohne).
