Suite for Trumpet and Piano is currently a two-movement work for trumpet and piano. (More movements may be added in the future.)
"Sparks" is driving and vibrant, displaying influences of rock music. The energy never abates in this short firecracker.
"Reflection (by the still waters)" is contemplative. The trumpet sings an long, slow melody over flowing, arpeggiated "water" figurations in the piano. A pulsing texture in the piano leads to further melodic exploration by the trumpet. Energy builds towards an exuberant climax, before receding to a reposed conclusion.
