Metamorphosis - Trumpet Solo

Postby wrayer » Wed Dec 17, 2014 7:30 am

It's been awhile since I've posted here. This is a new work for Trumpet and Piano that I composed yesterday. It is based on quartel harmony. It is a challenging piece for a player with good skills and range (ah, yes, I can play it!) It was conceived from a Dalby exercise I use as a warm-up.

Enjoy my new work: https://app.box.com/s/br5kmi7gvexjoixk59rd

Best regards,
Bill

Beautiful.
It confirms me that there's still good music around.
Bravo Bill.

Thanks Fabio. It was fun to compose and it seemed to flow out of me. It's a bear to play, but fun too.

Best regards,
Bill

Dear Bill,
I listened again to your piece.
To my ears it is like being too much pre-delay on the piano channel,
so it sounds as its low notes were doubled by an acoustic bass.
But I could be wrong and the double bass be actually there…

It would also be nice to have a live recording of this!

I wish a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and to your family.

Ah, Fabio I hear that too. I am not the "technician" so I sometimes get it wrong. I was playing with the equalization in the Aria Engine and probably have the pre-delay up to high. I wear hearing aids, but all they do is amplify the sound, so I don't always hear exactly what is coming out of the speaker.

Enough of that... Merry Christmas to you and your family this holiday season also "Buon Natale"

Hey Bill!

I haven't posted anything on here for a long while, but I had to tell you how much I enjoyed your piece. Loved the writing! It really reminded me of my long gone days of playing french horn for my senior recital. Did a contemporary piece by a composer name Bernard Heiden. The last movement was similar in style to Metamorphosis. Your piece brought back very fond memories.

Great work, Bill!!!

Gary

Thanks Gary,

It will be preformed live by a graduate student from the Cleveland Institute of Music next month. I will post the live performance when I receive it.

Yes, I know the name Bernard Heiden, nice music from him!

In case you'd like to hear the live performance of this piece here it is:
Trumpet: Nina Dvora
Piano: Patty Zinn

Metamorphosis

Enjoy (and, by the way, there is a sound at the very beginning that is street noise where the recording was made - some jerk honked his horn)

Best regards,
Bill
