PERFORMANCE NOTES

• The ensemble should be arranged around the audience with only the solo trumpet visible. If possible, the ensemble should be in the balconies about the audience.

• The solo trumpet should act !as conductor, establishing the timing and giving cues as noted.

• Durations of measures are given in seconds. All timings are approximate. Measures without an indicated timing are left to the discretion of the performer.

NOTES ON THE PROGRAM

This work evokes Mahler to share the musical space. The work begins with a long trumpet solo, which projects the plan for the entire work. The soloist then invokes the sound of each of the members of the ensemble with a series of calls. Invocation is a free, sometimes aleotoric and dependent on the performer’s interactions through cues.
