Heat for Hattie : for solo trumpet / Eve Duncan.

Library shelf no. 788.92/DUN 2 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

The trumpet has myriad qualities, with beautiful tonal warmth and sense of extraversion. Traditionally, it has brought people together in a positive communal way, either at celebrations, or in times of crises. It connects to the human heart with a sense of courage.

The positive warm qualities of the trumpet led to the music exploring fire, warmth and heat in an Australian context. Here is in the realm of human experience. The music explores warmth in relationships that generate vitality, whether in friendship, families or between loving couples.

It also explores the purifying path of inner fire, that can be generated as the challenges of everyday life provide fuel. Warmth and heat generated by life can lead to inner fire and subsequent transformation.

This exploration of inner warmth and fire in Australia is a mirror of the fire and warmth associated with Australian landscape.
