Nexus

for Solo Trumpet, Winds and Percussion

Series: MusicWorks Grade 4 Score Composer: James Curnow

Level: 4

The word “nexus” is defined as a tie or link between people and events. Nexus, for solo trumpet and band, includes several links between composer James Curnow and educator Alfred Watkins, to whom the work is dedicated. A well-known theme (particularly to Mr. Watkins' students) is drawn upon as the piece utilizes two primary musical settings. An energetic and agile scherzo appears in the beginning and again at the end, and is contrasted with an expressive Ballad theme. The soloist at the premiere (and on the recording) is Christopher Watkins, Alfred's son! This is a well-crafted and rewarding work for soloist and band alike. Dur: 6:00

Also available for trumpet with piano reduction - HL00231702.
