Work Overview

The trumpet etude is dedicated to my trumpeter son Raphael Harvey. This short work requires a high degree of synchronisation between the two parts, and is in four sections: two dance-like passages exploring the Fibonacci sequence (3, 5, 8, 13) in all musical parameters frame a 13-beat Latin-American ballad section followed by a muted jazz trumpet section. The etude explores issues of stamina and accuracy as well as stylistic and rhythmic understanding and requires a mature virtuoso technique.
