25 Renaissance Canons and Duets for 2 trumpets
Bicinia, two-part music of the Renaissance and early Baroque, were pieces frequently used for teaching of counterpoint and style. For modern trumpeters, they are challenging and valuable resources in the training of rhythmic flexibility, imitation, and musical expression. These editions include the addition of dynamics, articulations, and suggested tempi and style.
La minore for tuba, strings and basso continuo
The first and second movements of these concerti are reminiscent of a typical instrumental concerto from the early 18th century. The final movements are usually humorous in character, and contain references to music of the present day, to Swiss folklore, and sometimes even to pop music and jazz. The present Concerto Grosso for Tuba, Strings and Basso Continuo is the sixth concerto in this series. Notable within the final movement, a fugue, is the easily recognizable folk song, Vo Lozärn gäge Wäggis zue [From Lucerne to Weggis]
for cimbalom and symphony orchestra
The musical structures used in the composition are characteristic of the American minimalism in many of their aspects, making the piece more comprehensible even for an audience less familiar with contemporary classical music. Swedish pop music had a strong influence on the direction of chords sequences and the rhythmic ideas of my composition. However, it is important to note that my main purpose was not to make the orchestra play popular or dance music but to explore how the musical elements found in popular music can be integrated into the orchestral sounding.
