The 3 Statements
The first of his “3 Statements” for six trumpets (in Bb) is a solemn, dynamic Maestoso - Don’t hold back - lasting just under 1 minute, and linked to a lyrical second movement - Be relaxed - of about 2 minutes in which five trumpets with cup mutes provide a subtle background for a very beautiful flugelhorn solo. The last movement - Don’t waste your time - starts attacca as a fast Allegro ritmico of about 3 minutes, with simple but effective rhythmic motifs which, in the concluding section, return to the Maestoso of the beginning.
