Eastwind Variations for C Trumpet and MIDI
Eastwind Variations is a set of variations based on a series of pitch relationships as opposed to a traditional theme. Set against an accompaniment that exhibits a Far Eastern influence, the trumpet part explores different moods that at various times are rhythmic, acrobatic and hauntingly beautiful. Range is low b-flat to high c# (with an optional high e). The piece was composed for Alan Siebert and was a first prize winner in the 2002 International Trumpet Guild Composition Competition.
