Little Suite No.3 for three trumpets (Op.30c)

Four short movements for three trumpets (difficulty: advanced)

This four-movement suite was completed in 2016.

Flourish, the first movement, just 53 seconds in length, is a fanfare opening with a mixture of noble triadic writing and imitation.

Cortege is a slow and restrained processional movement in a minor mode, again mixing homophonic chording with some imitative passages.

Solitude, as the title suggests, is a gentle and reflective movement where the dynamics do not rise above mp.

The final movement, Skipping the Beat, is an upbeat, positive conclusion in a lilting 6/8 time.
