A Country Meadow was commissioned for the 2003 New
Zealand National Band Championships as the 'Open Cornet Test
Piece'. It is a reasonably demanding piece and can be played
using the full range of the cornet, trumpet, baritone or
euphonium. The piano accompaniment is also written in a fairly
standard style, with a 7/8 middle section added for variety.
It was composed in 2002 while living at 'Mumble Cottage', a cosy little European-styled farm house situated in the small country town of Burrawang NSW Australia, in the Southern Highlands south of Sydney.
Instrumentation: Cornet in B flat (or trumpet, or baritone or euphonium), piano.
Duration: 6 min.
