The First Voice for Solo Trumpet
Dr. Ticheli’s work for trumpet has its title drawn from the book of Revelation 4:1. (…and the first voice which I heard, like the sound of a trumpet speaking with me…) Extended mute techniques, multiphonics, subtle timbre transformations and disjointed linear writing are utilized to reflect speech. Like Revelation, The First Voice is intended to be puzzling and enigmatic.Mutes required include a straight, cup, harmon with and without stem.
