Work Overview

This Sonata for Trumpet and Piano is written for my colleague Joel Brennan. It is the 8th in a series of sonatas undertaken in the new millenium. Written for trumpet in C the work is cast in two programmatic movements - 'journey to Mars: 6 - 8 months' and 'return journey'. These are separated by a brief interlude for solo piano - 'the surface'. The Mars One program is notably a one-way mission, whereas NASA's planned Orion spacecraft would bring the crew back to Earth. As with all journeys, venturing out somewhere new has a different emotional psychology to the return journey and I have sought to reflect that in this work.
