Commissioned by the USAF Band as a feature for two talented members of the ensemble at the time, brothers trumpeter Victor Bowman and euphonium player Brian Bowman. The work is in three main parts including an opening Scherzo, an expressive yet simple Adagietto, and a Presto recapitulation of the opening themes followed by an extended trumpet candenza, a woodwind interlude and finally a short and energetic coda. The work is an excellent showpiece of the lyrical and technical abilities of the trumpet and euphonium and is available with band accompaniment for rental as well as with piano accompaniment, available for sale.
