Running at the Top of the World
ArtistsPaul Futer (trumpet)
Susan Nowicki (piano)
‘Charles Reskin’s music is known for its diversity, including an extremely wide range of musical styles and idioms. The Trumpet Sonata is a perfect example of how Reskin artfully combines these elements in a way that creates a new, unique sound that is very much of the 21st century. The piece is inspired by the American music — both classical and jazz — of the mid-20th century, and is an homage to the composers of that era. The first movement contrasts a lyrical first theme with an agitated, almost barbaric second theme group.
‘I first heard about Martin Rokeach's Running at the Top of the World from my trumpet teacher, David Bilger, who served as a judge for the International Trumpet Guild’s Ellsworth Smith competition in 2012. At the event, Rokeach’s new work was required repertoire for contestants. Full of complex sonorities, the piece is an exciting addition to the trumpet repertoire. Rokeach explores unique ways to write for both the trumpet and piano that are innovative and accessible.’ – Paul Futer
